CRCF's annual conference brings together researchers, practitioners and managers to highlight our pioneering new research and to share experiences of those working in the field.
In 2019, the annual conference: ‘Using new research to help vulnerable children and families thrive’, provided an opportunity to hear about and discuss the implications for practice from recent CRCF research. CRCF researchers from UEA gave five short presentations as a springboard for focused discussion about good practice. Practitioners and managers shared their own practice experience and ideas about how changes can be made, where needed. Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, the conference was postponed in 2020.
