Brathay Trust and the University of Cumbria are partnering for the 5th consecutive year to bring together practice, policy and research in leading wellbeing. The focus for 2017 is Leading Wellbeing within the context of children, young people and families. The conference will explore, share and take action on critical issues surrounding practice and research that supports children, young peoples and family wellbeing.
The conference will include local, national and international keynote speakers, leading examples from practice, opportunities to showcase innovation and learning from research and practice and open space forums to discuss critical questions arising from the day.
Day one will focus on sharing, exploring and developing leading practice supporting wellbeing. This will include practice based case studies and research drawing from multi-agency and multi-disciplinary areas. Critical discussion will focus on innovative ways of working together in changing contexts. This will draw out important messages for us to develop practice to meet the ever changing landscapes of children, young people, and families.
Day two will focus on evidencing the impact of wellbeing practice. This will focus on sharing leading practice that has taken hold of this key current critical agenda and is shaping what this should look like from a practice based perspective. With input from the Centre for Youth Impact and the pioneering work of their regional and thematic impact hubs.
