A new Family and Parenting Support Strategy, to build on the strengths of the existing ‘Families Matter’ strategy and to respond to the draft Programme for Government commitment to give every child the best start in life, is being developed by the Department of Health, with the support of other government Departments.
A full day workshop will be held in Crumlin Road Gaol on Wednesday 11 April 2018 to seek stakeholder input on the development of the Strategy. This will present a key opportunity to jointly determine the focus of the Strategy and to share evidence on what challenges are faced by families across Northern Ireland and evidence on how families can best be supported.
If would like to invite you to register your interest in attending the Family and Parenting Support Strategy workshop by emailing FCPDadmin@health-ni.gov.uk with a note of your name, email address, job title and organisation. This should be received by Wednesday 21st February 2018. You are welcome to circulate this invitation to colleagues who may also wish to register.
Please note that registration of interest does not guarantee allocation of a place at the event. Invitations and details for the Workshop will be issued in due course.
