Virtual Conference focusing upon ‘Working with Men’

Diverse people on online group video chat screen.

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership are hosting a virtual conference focusing upon ‘Working with Men’ taking place virtually on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 18th May 9.30 – 1.00.

Men have an important role to play in the lives of children as do mothers, however the voice of men is not always seen in assessments, audit and case reviews. We would like to explore how across the multi-agency workforce we can build on the good practice, identify ways to improve the engagement and voice of men and provide information and resources to enhance this area of work.

Speakers will include

Brid Featherstone, University of Huddersfield – Brid Featherstone is a Professor of Social Work at the University of Huddersfield.  She has a long standing interest in social care, social work and the engagement of men and has researched this area in a variety of settings.  She is currently working with Research in Practice on updating their research and practice tools on engaging men.

Owen Thomas, is Operational Manager at Working with Men supervising Working with Men’s team of Fathers development workers across London. Owen has over ten years direct experience as a father development worker working closely with professionals, agencies, fathers and male carer’s at crucial stages of their lives.

In addition we will be exploring ‘The Myth of invisible Men’ Thematic review from the National Child Safeguarding Practice Review, hearing directly from North Yorkshire Fathers and finishing off with an opportunity to reflect and identify next steps for this important area of work.
