Online Event | Bringing about change for children and families: How Family’s National Advocacy Programme is influencing care reform

When: 2PM UKT, Wednesday 20th November

Join Family members ChildLink (Guyana), CBRJ (Jamaica) and FOST (Zimbabwe) to discuss their advocacy work, in particular relating to children with disabilities, kinship care and reintegration. Participating panelists will provide a pre-recorded presentation on their advocacy work, drawing linkages with the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and exploring calls to action. Through the live panel discussion and Q&A, Members will explore both the issues their work aims to address, within the context of the UNCRC, and consider what needs to change as we look to the future. Get ready for the live Q&A by watching the introductory videos here.
