2 points about conference for care experienced people . 1 - We don't seek to represent the care experienced - we offer a venue for them to do it for themselves. 2.We don't see just as needing a voice - we say the whole care community needs to be heard.

We have long advocated for the involvement of families to enhance learning in safeguarding reviews. A tough ask but hugely helpful for practitioners' understanding of wider/underlying issues for affected children & families. Why such fundamental differences between DHRs & SCRs?

Listening to Kristinn Hermannsson and yet more overwhelming evidence of need for investment and resourcing of languages for entry into labour market and wondering how many hundreds of academic studies we need for U.K. to create support for LANGUAGES

Spot on Kate. Kids who are not engaged, or bored with the delivery, are more likely to not learn well. I'm the same, but I can walk & go to another source, if I need the info, as I have fall-back techniques now. Many teenagers don't have those yet & can't walk out, so switch off.

Worth bearing in mind this was not review of care system, but of processes involved when children enter care. It was response to growing numbers entering care, and financial strain this was placing on local authorities. Not surprising it recommends increased government funding.

Change in our sector is almost always driven by ‘hard-cases’; tragic stories involving terrible outcomes. This makes a sustained focus on rights-based practice very difficult. Couldn’t agree more with Andrew Webb on this

Perhaps the system doesnt work because LA's approach decision-making with a "how can we not ... " rather than a "should we ..." mindset. Thats possibly due to a lack of money Possibly poorly written law Possibly poor policies / training But that is the issue IMO

Prioritising relationships = threats of HCPC/P45 for things not on the computer, not critical things, just any things. It is not possible to get All THE THINGS on the PC + build relationships, I do the latter but 'my' families would probably rock up as character witnesses!
