Best practice and innovation will be at the forefront when Coventry City Council Children’s and Adult Services hosts Practice Week (25-29 June).
Delegates from all over the country and our own staff across adults and children’s services will take part in a series of talks and workshops aimed at improving the outcomes for adults, children and their families.
The events will be led by a mixture of local experts, leading academics and national policy leads giving delegates the chance to reflect on current thinking and practice to support their knowledge and skills.
A huge range of interesting and challenging topics will be covered including neglect, abuse in professional settings and understanding the impact of adverse childhood experiences.
Cllr Pat Seaman, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “In Coventry we take the view that we can only improve the quality of our practice by constantly learning, developing and challenging the way we do things. Practice Week allows practitioners to share their best practice and that can only be good for our residents.”
Cllr Faye Abbott, Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: “Some of our residents rely on the expertise and skills of our adult social care teams when they are at their most vulnerable. I am so pleased we place such a focus on keeping our skills sharp so that our communities can feel the benefit and I’d encourage all practitioners to come along.”
