    12 March 2018 | Nagalro Spring conference

    Monday, 12 March 2018, 10.30 am – 4.00 pm at Woburn House20 Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9HQ
    Contact between children and their parents, siblings and wider family is one of the thorniest issues that the Family Court has to grapple with on a daily basis.  How much is enough?  What is too much?  Can there be direct contact after adoption?  When and how can that take place? Can contact be used to support an adoptive placement?  When will it undermine it?  This conference will address these issues in both theory and practice, both pre- proceedings and in permanency, in the light of the impact of recent research and social media.
    With Lord Justice McFarlane as the chair and keynote speaker for the day, the conference will bring together professionals at the heart of this most important debate. Sharing the platform with him is Professor June Thoburn of UEA, and John Simmonds, Director for Policy, Research and Development at CoramBAAF, who will offer their extensive knowledge of the research base regarding contact.  Cathy Ashley of the Family Rights Group, will provide the alternative perspective of birth families.  A team from the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham comprising the Group Manager, Special Guardians’ Support Social worker and a special guardian, will provide a practice perspective regarding the contact dilemmas experienced in caring for SG and LAC children.
