The Children and Families’ Practice Exchange Group (South Wales)
A network was established in 1997 (previously called the Children’s Rights Practice Exchange) in response to the need for practitioners from all over Wales to meet to share good practice and develop work relating to participation and children’s rights.
The network has developed to become more responsive to local issues, seeking to work locally with partners to deliver events that inform members on policy, effective practice and joined up working. If you would like to see a South Wales Practice Exchange event addressing an issue in your area please get in touch to discuss.
The main benefits of the network are the opportunities to:
- promote the rights of the child
- share information and good practice to improve local service delivery
- obtain support from other members of the group
- stimulate developments in the field, such as research, training, campaigning/lobbying and conferences
A wide variety of agencies and project workers attend the meetings which mean that the opportunities to share information and good practice can be particularly useful.
Themed network meetings are held three times a year in local areas across South Wales. External speakers are invited to the meetings and give presentations on the theme. Presentations for former meetings can be downloaded from the events archive.
Membership of the Network is open to anyone across Wales who works with and on behalf of children, young people and families.
