Pre-birth practice in socially distant times: challenges and innovations – REGISTER NOW
19th June 2020
The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory is hosting a virtual practice forum to discuss pre-birth practice in the context of Covid-19 on Tuesday 23rd June, from 10.30-12 noon.
This collaborative event is open to practitioners working across the family justice system and is an opportunity to share experiences of working with families at risk of having their baby removed at or near birth during the Covid-19 pandemic and to consider post-birth direct work and contact/family time as it impacts family proceedings.
The event will be Chaired by Lisa Harker, Director of the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory with an introduction from Prof Karen Broadhurst from the Centre of Child and Family Justice Research at Lancaster University.
There will also be the opportunity to hear directly from practitioners from across England and Wales, who are adapting and developing new ways to engage with families pre-birth despite the challenges posed by Covid-19.
The event will enable practitioners to join in discussion and share their ideas and learn from others across England and Wales who are facing these practice issues.
There are limited spaces available so register here to confirm your attendance before 12 noon on Monday 22nd June. Microsoft Teams will be used for this virtual event.
