Where is Childhood going?
“I’d like to network with people from other services and professions. We seem to speak different languages sometimes, but we’ve got to work together.”
“There is such a lot going on. It’s really exciting, but it is hard to keep up with it. I’d like somewhere to talk to colleagues, to see if I’m up to date.”
“With some of the changes going on, I’m worried that we’re throwing out the baby with the bath water.”
“When I’m at work, I have a lot of targets to achieve. I don’t mind being busy, but I do need space to think as well.”
“I’d like the chance to meet my opposite numbers in other authorities.”
What do you think?
Coming soon to the University of Northampton, we are planning seminars to respond to the question, “Where is Childhood going?”.
We already have some topics lined up :
– young carers,
– support for young people leaving care,
– responses to the book Toxic Childhood.
If you wish to be invited, or if you would like to propose a topic for discussion groups, send us an email, addressed to :
