Due to unforeseen circumstances, Dr Jenny Molloy is now unable to attend our Partnership event this Wednesday.  Information regarding any updates to the agenda will be posted here in due course.

“Do you work or volunteer with children and want to explore what more you and your organisation could do to really have meaningful engagement with children?

If so, then attendance at this year’s conference, titled ‘The Voice of the Child’, is a must for you.


We have secured some inspirational and challenging speakers who will bring to life what it feels like to have been on the receiving end of children’s services and to now be in positions where they can influence future provision. The day will provide you with an opportunity to listen, to think and to bring the lived experience of children into the room.


 I am very much looking forward to the day and I hope that you will join me on 11th December.”


Francis Habgood - Independent Chair of the Partnership


There will be an opportunity to ask each guest speaker some questions after their presentation.

We would also request that you plan to attend for the whole day and take part in the plenary Q&A session at the end. 

This event is free to attend however there will be a charge of £60 in the event of non-attendance or cancelling your place 7 days or less prior to the event taking place.
