Description

Relationships making the difference – Another Event Co-produced with Citizens and Professionals

Join us for the second in our series of events exploring the power of relationships and community, seeing meaning and opportunity to democratise services through the citizen voice.

This event will look up-close at the helping relationship by bringing back together citizens and professionals that have worked together to help us think about our organisations, the connections that we rely on and maintain every day. Can we develop a more relational analysis of power and response to risk?

By hearing stories from both children and adults services, we will aim to demonstrate the interdependence of people across the community and celebrate reciprocity in helping relationships. We will discuss how council officers can develop and sustain credibility when working in the community with citizens and their connected networks.

Jointly facilitated by a Camden Citizen and a social worker the event will include.

Key Note: Reflective conversations between professionals and citizens that have worked together, people with experience of different services from different local authorities.

Shared Lives ambassadors from the community will outline the key principles of the approach. Alex Fox OBE (Shared Lives founder) will help consider how these principles could support a transformed approach to public services.

Relational practice through a rights and social justice lens. Perspectives on power and risk from Clarissa Stevens (Reframe Collective), Beverley Barnett-Jones MBE (Transformations WR4C), Kevin Makwikila (Family Rights Group Trustee) and Paul Nixon (Former Chief Social Worker New Zealand).

How our stories can change the systems we live in?. In this participatory session, Ella Saltmarshe (Expert in narrative change, Point People) will introduce different ways we can use story to change systems. Participants will then roll up their sleeves and explore the stories and tactics they want to use for systemic change.

Making the child protection process more participative. A round table discussion of citizens, practitioners and managers. With contributions from Leeds, Hertfordshire, Stockport and Camden, and chaired by 'Annie' from Surviving Safeguarding (Parent and Relative Representative, Family Justice Council). Showcasing ‘Camden Conversations’ Family-led participatory research.
