Practitioner Forums

Practitioner forums help people who work with children and young people learn from each other, understand each other's roles and responsibilities and what local provision is available in each part of the county.

There are seven Practitioner Forums up and running, one in each district area. They're free to attend. Why not give your local forum a try, there's no need to book just come along.

Please contact with any queries or for further information.
