Following the success of the Staf Summit for senior leaders held in March 2020 we are delighted announce that we will hold our second Staf Summit on 17 March 2021.

The Independent Care Review challenged us all to be a good parent to young people in and leaving care – this event will support your organisation to meet that challenge.

This event is for senior leaders and their teams with responsibility for Corporate Parenting or directly providing care and support to young people with care experience.

We will bring together experts, best practice examples and the voice of young people with care experience to support organisations to be a good Corporate Parent and to keep the Promise. In particular, we’ll focus on transitions, with the Promise proposing thematic reviews on the topic.

Throughout the day our speakers will underline the importance of relationships, trauma-informed care and practice, listening to young people and fulfilling children’s rights.
