Community of Change Residential: Pause for thought… Together we are better

7th & 8th December 2016

At and since our last residential we have asked for feedback on what members wanted from the events. There was an overwhelming response to have facilitation on taking stock and how to work well with families. Consequently, this event was a joint family and worker event to check on what's working well and to highlight some best practice, as well as looking at what's not working so well and why. Our aim was to explore the main issues and topics and then start to work together to resolve them.

Martin Routledge shared his thoughts on how to make national policy work in practice and lessons around implementation. We also heard from parents and young people who shared a range of things that are working well and heard the great results they are achieving by working together. As ever, this event was about producing solutions to the challenges raised and so we had various workshops to discuss ideas for going forward and address any problems.

The presentations have been compiled into one PDF, which can be downloaded by clicking on the download below.
