The initial early development phase (Autumn 2013-Spring 2014)


This 3 year work programme was strongly informed by a 6 months development phase during which:

  • An initial Parents' Panel event was held involving 17 parents whose children had been subject to state intervention, for example their children were or had been on a child protection plan, in care, in the mental health or youth justice system or excluded from school.
  • A vibrant discussion seminar took place in March 2014 involving 70 people, comprised of parents whose children have been subject to state intervention, young care leavers, family and friends carers, academics, social workers and other practitioners and managers of organisations working within child welfare, education, mental health or youth justice fields.
  • A development group met to steer the work.
