Focus on families: ‘No man, woman or child is an island’

The old saying ‘No man is an island’ is true and women and children do not live in isolation either.

These interactive, informative sessions will provide an opportunity to understand how a whole family approach to working is being created and delivered in Suffolk. How working in partnership and working to your strengths can improve a family’s situation.

There’s also an opportunity to feedback on any challenges and opportunities and hear the key messages related to this work and how they could affect you.

  • 6 March at West Suffolk House, Bury St Edmunds, 9.15am – 1pm
  • 16 March at Landmark House, Ipswich 9.15am – 1pm
  • 20 March at Kirkley Centre, Lowestoft 9.15am – 1pm

Who is it for?

The event is for anyone working with children, young people and families but has an emphasis on the role of the VCS. There will be case studies and an opportunity to hear how this is working for VCS groups.
