Queen’s University, Belfast (QUB) together with the Department of Health and the Department for Communities will host a one day conference entitled “Reinforcing or Reducing Inequalities Amongst Children? The Role of Child Protection and Community Services” on Friday, 6 October 2017.
This conference will launch the findings from the ‘Child Welfare Inequalities Project’, a major research project funded by the Nuffield Foundation which examined the relationship between deprivation and child protection interventions across the four UK nations. Professor Paul Bywaters (Coventry University) and Dr Lisa Bunting (QUB) will present the findings from the UK wide and NI elements of this work. They will be joined by Dr Nat O’Connor (University of Ulster) who will be discussing economic inequality, as well as representatives from the NI policy and practice community.
The conference is free and the hosts would encourage attendance from policy makers, service commissioners and practitioners across the statutory and community sectors in NI. It will be held in Riddel Hall, QUB and tea/coffee and lunch will be provided.
