Event description

Description

Baroness Lola Young of Hornsey OBE invites you to a Seminar at the House of Lords on Tuesday 27th November from 1.30pm - 4.00 pm in Committee Room G.

The Access to Records Campaign Group [ACRCG] is working with Baroness Young of Hornsey OBE to hold this invitation only seminar to discuss the current and on-going work of ACRCG, which has its focus on the experiences of adult care leavers seeking access to their social care files.

This work, based on three strands of research, forms an evidence base revealing the inconsistencies and hurdles encountered by adult care leavers when seeking information about their family background and time in care.

It is an opportunity for legislators, policy makers, access to records officers and information governance managers, alongside those working in the field of social care, to devise national standards for access and support services for adult care leavers when seeking access to their care files.

Access to Care Records Campaign Group is an alliance of individuals and organisations, including The Care Leavers' Association, Barnardo's and CoramBaaf. We are supported by the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers and the J Leon Philanthropy Council.
