About this Event
The Make Care Incredible, Lovin' Care Gathering will bring together leaders and researchers in the field of children’s residential care, lived experience leaders, and professionals with a shared interest in love led practice in children’s homes. It will inform and inspire you, connect you with others who can support you with this work, and provide a space to consider in depth some of the challenges, opportunities and ways through the systemic barriers, to bring about this vital change to the way we deliver care.
We know that to thrive, children need to feel secure in loving relationships. Yet as professionals we also feel that we aren’t supposed to love the children we work with, tell them we love them, or encourage them to get close to and love us. This must change if we want to improve children’s outcomes, and if we want many more of them to go on to live safe, happy, successful, and settled lives.
Children’s Homes Quality is part of a movement to bring love led practice into children’s homes. We are determined to support you to create the conditions where love can safely flourish between children and staff. Our evidence based Lovin’ Care approach has supported homes to radically change the way they work, releasing their staff and children’s potential to connect deeply and bloom. Early evaluations have shown how this approach has: improved staff morale and retention, decreased incidents which challenge staff, and improved children’s progress. The homes that have worked with CHQ to embed the Lovin’ Care approach have all been judged as Outstanding by Ofsted, who recognise the high value in children feeling loved, and the elevated quality of care given by adults who authentically know and love the children they look after.
The Make Care Incredible Gathering takes place at the beautiful and iconic Midland Hotel in central Manchester, on Friday May 19th 2023, 9.30 – 16.00. Early Bird tickets cost £130 +VAT (before 31st March)
We will have inspiring speakers who will provide the evidence base and compelling argument for love led practice; Q&A with the speakers panel; safe spaces facilitated by workshop leaders to explore in depth the challenges and innovative ways forward; many opportunities for connecting and networking in the comfortable surroundings of Manchester’s iconic Midland Hotel, and a delicious restaurant lunch.
Together we can unlock the potential of children’s homes to be incredible places for children to live and thrive, and be a true foundation for successful and happy adult lives.
