SIRCC 2021 Online

Online event

The SIRCC Planning Group is delighted to announce that SIRCC 2021 will again be online!

Hold the dates in your diary to join in with live webinars, reflections, practical resources, and so, so much more over two days starting on Wednesday 29 September.

The theme for this year is 'the workforce', highlighting the experiences, challenges, and opportunities for those working in residential child care.

We've heard some fabulous stories of what's going on in residential child care and we will be sharing and giving a platform to some powerful anecdotes, experiences, challenges, and new or changing ways of working, as told by young people and those working in residential child care.

Watch this space for programme details to come.
