Imagine if the leading voices that speak on behalf of children talked to each other. Imagine if they listened.

Children and families need professionals, individually and together, to be offering help in effective, innovative and creative ways. Creativity and innovation come from fresh thinking, open-minded awareness, knowledge and inspiration. This day gives space and time for dialogue between different people and organisations invested in supporting families in crisis; social workers, lawyers, psychologists, therapists, family support workers, researchers, doctors, social justice campaigners. A group of people with expertise in their own field will have the opportunity to interview, and then be interviewed by, another person who shares the goals of protecting children but who comes from a different background. It is out of the dialogue that we can all identify how to move forward, and how to make the most of what we have to offer children and families.
