The Way Forward

    Webinar Mon, March 14, 2022

    The Way Forward’s key recommendations were presented

    About this event

    The Parents, Families and Allies Network (PFAN) brought together five organisations working with parents involved in different aspects of children’s social care to make suggestions for transformational change. Our report makes practical recommendations to transform children’s social care based on the experiences of parents with lived experience and their allies.

    We have already presented the findings to the Independent review (see video)

    Join us to learn about the report and discuss in small groups how we can get our recommendations implemented

    Some of our recommendations:

    • Promote participation through parent advocacy
    • Reduce entry to care and adoption
    • Replace Working Together with family friendly guidance
    • Improve legal representation in family courts
    • Increase help for children in need
    • Change the culture of child rescue
    • Provide support for families during care proceedings
    • Meet the needs of disabled children
    • Co-produce services, promote partnership and establish help for children and families
