Together with Sandwell Council we are currently carrying out several conversations on how we deliver improved outcomes for children and young people.

After a successful workshop 1 in July 2018 we are now hosting a second workshop.

Workshop 2 will focus on prevention; we will address all tiers and start formulating the Sandwell Children and Young People Joint Strategy.

If you work with children and young people please join the conversation and help us to make a difference to the quality of young lives. The workshop takes place from 9.00 am – 1.00 pm (9.00 am registration with a 9.15 am start, 1.00 pm lunch) on 4 October at North Smethwick Development Trust, Brasshouse, Brasshouse Lane, Smethwick, B66 1BA.
