We present evening and full day training seminars throughout the year which are CPD accredited for solicitors and for members of the Bar under the New Practitioner Programme. All training is of the highest standard and is pertinent to the issues of current interest to many different professionals and agencies working with children and their families within the forensic context of both public and private law proceedings.
In addition to training, we provide members with a forum for the exchange of information, opinions and ideas and the opportunity to share and to learn from the experience and knowledge of members of other professions dealing with the same issues in relation to children and their families.
Our members benefit from reduced entry fees to all seminars but non-members are also welcome at very competitive prices. Members also receive the Child Concern Newsletter which includes articles of topical interest relating to practical issues, case law notes, diary dates of forthcoming events and other items of interest. We also organise various social events throughout the year.
