Online Event: Our Families, Our Voices

“Working together for the benefit of our children”

7.30 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. Wednesday 16th March 2022

Family Rights Group hosted an evening of talks, performances and conversation curated and led by young people, parents and kinship carers with lived experience of the child welfare system in tandem with practitioners and senior children’s services leaders.

Family Rights Group’s parents’ and kinship carers’ panel members worked together to create this event. It was an opportunity to showcase the experiences of people who have been involved with the child welfare system, through creative storytelling. The evening challenged assumptions and highlighted what needs to change within the child welfare system. Critically it  also focused upon the benefits of effective partnership working between families and the state in the interests of children.

Participants drew upon skills learnt in workshops run by SoundDelivery in partnership with Family Rights Group.

This event has been supported by Lankelly Chase Foundation.
