RESCHEDULED: Reflect to Connect: A relational approach to changing the world

11 May   |   
4:00pm
 to 
5:15pm

featuring

Heidi Tweedie│Director │Moray Wellbeing Hub CIC

Gary Wallace │Public Health Specialist │Plymouth City Council

Changing services is a cultural project and in this free seminar from The Academy for Social Justice we will offer an alternative to the kind of transactional, target based culture that currently dominates.

Heidi and Gary will discuss how we develop empathy, trusted relationships, openness, transparency and a sense of shared endeavour to build new culture, based on mutual respect, equality and a focus on what matters both for staff and for people using services.

This seminar will also look at the macro and the micro with active practical examples. These examples will aim to inspire and give practical tools to delegates in mobilising increased ownership at all system levels, sharing learning of key tools such as reflective practice, appreciative enquiry and the CHIME framework.

Please note you must be a member of the Academy to attend an event. Membership and services are free and you can join when booking your place on Eventbrite

Procedural Justice in the Context of Domestic Violence: Enhancing the Experience of Service Users

19 May   |   
4:00pm
 to 
5:15pm

featuring Dr Alison Heydari, Commander in the Metropolitan Police Service

For many people Domestic Abuse is an everyday experience. It is critical that the response to these incidents meets the needs of those affected.

In this free seminar, Alison will discuss her doctoral research which has lived experience at its centre. She will analyse the experiences of those impacted by Domestic Abuse, both from service users’ perspectives as well as responding officers, senior officers and Independent Domestic Violence Advocates.

This seminar presents the five research themes generated as a result of utilising Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, what ‘good policing’ looks like and what barriers exist to consistently delivering better outcomes.  The research findings are put forward for discussion, designed to inspire change to improve public services, civil society and help all stakeholders to thrive so that legitimacy and trust in services can be enhanced.

This event is hosted by Academy for Social Justice. Please note you must be a member of the Academy to attend an event. Membership and services are free and you can join when booking your place on Eventbrite

Child Exploitation and Risk Assessments: Working to Increase Safety in Exploitation (WISE)

26 May   |   
4:00pm
 to 
5:15pm

Featuring Jahnine Davis and Nick Marsh, Directors, Listen Up

Listen Up is leading the co-ordination and research of this project which is a working partnership between Greater Manchester Complex Safeguarding Hub and wider-safeguarding partners. The initial evaluation of WISE is being supported by the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care and findings are due to be published late spring 2021.

This free seminar from The Academy for Social Justice will focus on the findings of the WISE project and will explore the origins of child exploitation risk assessments and messages from research relating to child exploitation risk assessments. Jahnine and Nick will also discuss the use and limitations of such tools and how they can include some young people and exclude others. Finally they will share the early findings and lessons from WISE - including moving away from risk assessments and tools and moving towards a focus on safety and stability.
