About this event
We are delighted to invite you to a free online collaboration event on 22nd September 2021 which forms part of our launch of the Anna Freud Centre’s Northern Hub. This is an opportunity to come together with colleagues across sectors to consider the significant challenges we face nationally to close the gap in children and young people’s mental health support, and to hear about some of the great practice and innovation happening in North West England.
The event will feature presentations and commentary from experts - by lived experience, and in service and policy – spanning education, social care, youth services, clinical services and more. Speakers will include Peter Fonagy, Chief Executive of the Anna Freud Centre, Simone Spray Chief Executive at 42nd Street and a range of leaders of promising practice and cutting-edge initiatives from across the region. Organisations and initiatives sharing their work include Blackpool Better Start; YPAS; 42nd Street; Parents in Mind; the Greater Manchester Resilience Hub; Blackpool Sixth; Home-Start Oldham, Stockport and Tameside; Cumbria Public Health; Central Manchester Foundation Trust; Calm Connections; #BeeWell - and more.

- Innovative ways of working with children, young people and families who have experienced trauma

- Multi-agency working: making sense of the gaps between services
