NOTE:  Registration has now closed for this conference.

The 5th biennial conference of the Child and Family Research Centre NUI Galway will address the challenges and opportunities in effectively realising children’s rights to be cared for safely within their families. It has been devised intentionally in order to offer practitioners and other key stakeholders the space to listen, reflect and discuss these current challenges facing services for children. The central theme of the conference is how to develop family support interventions that are mindful of the child’s right to be protected and child protection (and related) through keynote presentations and practice workshops addressing Family Support in universal and preventative settings, through to ‘early in the problem’ targeted support services, and child protection and alternative care provision

The Gender and Child Welfare Network will be holding a separate one day event on June 15th at NUI Galway on gender, child welfare and family support with leading speakers and a range of highly topical workshops.  For further information on this event, please click here.
