Children in Wales’ Parenting Conference this year focused on how to support the mental and emotional health of children and parents, including the relationship between family members.

We are very grateful to all our speakers for their excellent presentations and contribution to making the parenting conference such a great day. Thanks also go to all the delegates who brought such positive energy and contributed to the lively debate.

A film of each of our excellent presenters is available below. It’s best to watch them in sequence as each speaker picked up on points made by previous speakers. The films are accompanied by PowerPoint presentations which you will need to view in tandem with the films. You will also find links to resources and research referred to in the talks within these documents provided.

The parenting conference report will be available soon which will include delegates’ feedback and our recommendations for future action.
