About this event

Featured Guests

Dr Jolien Vos - Research and Evaluation Officer at NSPCC Grimsby

Local research shows that the workforce have an inconsistent understanding of the causes of harm and contributors to well-being. Here, some local income and deprivation, family well-being and social care data will be shared to set the scene and outline what social justice and equality looks like in our area.

Dr Lowis Charfe - Senior Lecturer at University of Central Lancashire, UK Lead in Erasmus funded Massive Open On-Line Course (MOOC), Member of Social Pedagogy Professional Association.

Social Pedagogy provides us with a theoretical framework for working with others in a way that acknowledges that each individual has unique, unlimited potential that just needs to be unlocked and nurtured. Social Pedagogy can help us to consider inequality and its impact on family wellbeing, and to understand how using this framework can support us to work alongside families and communities to prevent harm and increase wellbeing.

Dr Yuval Saar-Heiman - Senior Research Fellow at Royal Holloway, University of London

Yuval will discuss his work with Prof. Anna Gupta - The Social Model of Child Protection and the Poverty Aware Paradigm offers an alternative paradigm from which to consider family and community needs, and describes how practice can be improved to better meet demand at a preventative level. The model recognises the damaging impact of poverty and inequality recommends that the harms children and families face are explored in a way acknowledges the social, environmental and economic contexts in which they live and explains how families and communities can be supported to capitalise on their existing strengths to prevent or overcome adversity.

Dr Anna Tarrant is an Associate Professor in Sociology at the University of Lincoln and is a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow. Her research interests include men and masculinities; family life; the lifecourse; and methods of qualitative secondary analysis and co-creation. Her current funded study, ‘Following Young Fathers Further’, is a qualitative longitudinal, participatory study of the lives and support needs of young fathers. Her sole authored monograph Fathering and Poverty will be published by Policy Press in August 2021.

Anna will discuss what inequality and marginalisation (as a form of social injustice) looks like in “real life”, for young dads in particular, and will suggest some of the things we can do to overcome it.

The event will also present two short TEDTalks.
