Making the Link master classes on child accident prevention
CAPT is running a series of free, half-day master classes, funded by the Department for Education in London on 29 and 30 March 2012 on how to foster partnership working to help keep children safe from serious accidental injury. CAPT’S Making the Link project is part of the Safe Network, the National Safeguarding Unit for the third sector in England, and it’s jointly managed by the NSPCC, Children England and the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT).
The four interactive, half-day events take place in London on 29 and 30 March 2012. Each event will address a different topic related to joined-up working to help keep children safe from serious accidental injury.
The aim of these events is to:
- Bring senior stakeholders in the statutory and voluntary and community sectors (VCS) together to share learning on effective practice.
- Develop and share knowledge between academics, commissioners and practitioners.
- Discuss the impact of new local strategic and delivery arrangements for public health.
- Influence commissioning and delivery of programmes in child accident prevention.
- Increase the role of the VCS in commissioning and partnership working.
- Commissioners of services for children in the health sector and local authorities.
- Senior professionals within VCS organisations with an interest in responding to invitations to tender to provide services to statutory organisations, including accident prevention.
- Practitioners involved in all aspects of accident prevention, including early intervention, home safety, road safety, housing, public health, etc.
Master class format
The format of these events will be a ‘BBC Question Time’ style forum, with a panel of invited experts and an audience of senior level practitioners, commissioners and VCS stakeholders. Audience members will be given the opportunity to ask questions of panel members and peers (in advance and on the day), and the event will facilitate networking between all participants. A buffet lunch will be provided each day between the morning and afternoon sessions.
The following topics have been confirmed. Participants may attend one or more events in the series.
