Event description

Description

Child welfare is on the brink in Nova Scotia

The current service delivery for child protective services is compromised by inadequate resources placed into this system to accommodate the demands of the amended Children and Family Services Act, the ever-increasing complexity of intersecting issues faced by vulnerable Nova Scotia families, and a lack of community resources.

Meaningful policy and program solutions are needed!

The NSCSW is inviting all stakeholders involved with the child welfare system i.e. families and youth, frontline social workers and supervisors, foster care parents, youth group home workers, anti-poverty advocates, teachers, health care workers, lawyers, private practitioners/counsellors, child and youth advocates, etc.

What: Public Symposium

An open and respectful meeting of common goals surrounding child and youth welfare

Where: Dalhousie Student Union Building (SUB), Room 303

6136 University Avenue, Halifax

When: June 15, 2019 9:00am to 2:00pm

A light lunch will be provided. Childcare will be available during the symposium.

There is no cost to participate. However, pre-registration is required.
