With less than a week to go, Kibble’s contribution to the CELCIS Conference on 8 October in Perth Concert Hall is shaping up nicely.
The Kibble band will be playing at lunchtime providing some light entertainment; art work from the open school and safe centre will be on display as well as arts and crafts. On top of that, the young people have been working with staff to provide little treats, which will be nicely packaged and branded. There will also be two joint theatrical presentations in partnership with the Who Cares? team.
Everyone has been working hard to pull all this together for the event and CELCIS are very much looking forward to our input on the day!
The conference explores a question at the heart of our care system: how can we ensure looked after children and care leavers feel part of a nurturing family?
Present at the conference will be;
- Professor Alexis Jay who is the conference chair and was previously the Chief Social Work Adviser to the Scottish Government
- Dr Tony Bates, Founding Director of Headstrong (The Irish National Centre for Youth Mental Health)
- Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Patron of the Reader Organisation and Professor of Reading at Liverpool Hope University
Details on how to book are available on the CELCIS website.
