For the first time children and young people are at the centre of the political and public debate. From child poverty to education, the nature of childhood to health and well being, how we bring up and support children in the UK has never been so firmly in the spotlight.

This timely conference will bring together high level speakers from Government, academia and children’s services to generate in depth discussion about how policy can be translated into practice.

# The comprehensive programme covers: The Government’s new Children’s Plan – implications and implementation
# Ending child poverty – political approaches and commitment
# The integrated approach to services from 0-19
# Turning policy into practice

In addition, there will be in-depth sessions and seminars focusing on:
# New programmes and opportunities for young people
# Developing partnerships to support outcomes for children and young people
# Supporting positive childhoods
# Early intervention to support vulnerable children
