The PACE (Permanence and Care Excellence) team at CELCIS hosted a Practice Echange Workshop on 15 November 2018 in Glasgow, with almost 70 delegates attending from local authorities and organisations throughout Scotland. The workshop theme was “Pre-birth planning, Assessment and “Getting it right from the start”, and included a keynote presentation by Alan Sinclair, author of 'Right from the Start', as well as talks by Linda Davidson, examples from practice from Shona Irvine, Helen Runciman and Julia Donaldson and group discussion sessions.

The report concludes with suggested national and local actions that could be taken in England to help pave the way for implementing early intervention.   Read More ...
