Front-line practitioner workshops -19th and 23rd April 2021

The Devon Children and Families Partnership (DCFP) is a collection of different agencies, working together to improve outcomes for children by making multi-agency working more effective. So that children and families get the right support, in the right place at the right time.

Children in Devon are best safeguarded when key agencies work together effectively. The Devon Children and Families Partnership is designed to help make this happen.

We want to ensure that we get our “next steps” right and are keen to hear from front-line multi-agency practitioners and managers that work with children, young people and families.

For example, what do you think we should be doing for children and young people in the next 12 months, and how can we better respond?

We are running two virtual workshops:

  • 19th April 2021, 10am to 1pm
  • 23rd April 2021, 11am to 2pm

The aim of the workshops is to collate your ideas, as front-line practitioners, in respect of working together to agree the outcomes we want to achieve for children and young people and how we can work in partnership to respond to the needs of children, young people and family’s across the communities of Devon.
