IMPACT: Learning from the ups and downs of co-production with social care services in Wales - North Wales

Co-production|Workshop|Conwy- North Wales

In the evaluation of co-production it is vitally important to learn from the direct experiences of people who are engaged in co-production, whether this be in social work practice, social care services, or local communities. One of the most effective ways to learn from experience is through stories. We would therefore warmly invite anyone who has been involved in co-production to join us to share and learn from their stories at three regional events.

ExChange: South Wales Practitioner Workshop: Counting Fathers In: How can social workers build better relationships with fathers involved in child protection services?

ExChange Practitioner Workshop |Partner Events|Cardiff

Research indicates that child protection services still struggle to engage effectively with children’s fathers and/or father figures. One consequence of this is that assessments may not accurately reflect the combination of risk and resources most fathers present for children they care for. Failure to engage effectively with fathers is a problem on two counts. Firstly, it means a failure to hold fathers and mothers equally to account for the safe care of children. Secondly, it means a failure to fully and fairly assess what fathers are actually doing, or could do, to care for their children.
