Coffee and Chat

Coffee and Chats are informal lunchtime sessions open to everyone working with children, young people and their families. We typically invite a charity and/or public sector colleagues to come and share their experiences in a particular area, before opening up to Q&A and discussion.

“I have been to the last two and want to acknowledge how good they really are. A huge thanks to the team for putting them together and the partners who contribute. The programme is high quality both in terms of content, engagement and wide representation. Often you have to pay for national conferences that are not nearly as good as your Coffee and Chats.”
