Steps to Success: Supporting quality transitions through and beyond residential child care

In April 2015, residential child care in Scotland began taking steps forward into an important transition. A transition which will provide more security, stability and support to the children and young people in our care. Just as young people themselves have driven forward these important changes, again they will be at the heart of the SIRCC 2015 conference, providing input to the plenary sessions, chairing workshops and contributing to and challenging discussion.

Our children and young people go through a whole range of transitions every single day, big and small. They are on a constant and uncertain journey which begins even before they first enter residential child care, one which lasts to the point where they leave care and beyond. As the adult professionals and carers who are involved in their lives, our actions, interactions and relationships can have a profound impact on their lives. These impacts we can make, and the influence we have provides us with real opportunities to make every step of the transition journey a positive one for the young people in our care.

Residential child care conference

Entering its 16th year as Scotland’s only dedicated residential child care conference, SIRCC 2015 ‘Steps to Success’, provides a space for all of us to come together. It’s a tremendous annual opportunity for us to explore and celebrate current good practice, hear about relevant and innovative research, and build relationships and networks with colleagues. It also gives a chance to hear from the young people themselves, to learn what matters for them on their journey.

Coming from creative, academic and practice-based backgrounds, our keynote speakers will inspire, inform and challenge you. Our parallel and workshop sessions will provide practical tools, working models and insights, to help you and your colleagues make a real difference in your own workplaces, and ultimately in the lives of our children and young people.
