In a joint venture between Children First Northamptonshire and Northamptonshire Adult Social Services, a Festival of Practice has been agreed by both Senior Leadership teams.

The events planned, will provide an innovative, informative and interesting range of learning opportunities, which will support practice and help to make professional connections between staff.

This year, the theme of World Social Work Day is Promoting the importance of Human Relationships and our sessions will loosely link to this, supported by the collaborative approach of adult and children’s services.

The Festival of Practice will offer independent guest speaker sessions combined with a range of staff specialists and enthusiasts offering workshop based events.

Sessions are available at venues North and South of the county in order to maximise attendance, and all staff are welcome at all events. Teams are encouraged to work together, to ensure as many staff as possible can attend, whilst maintaining business as usual.
