Holistic Whole Family Support Conference - Policy into Practice

Event date: 8 February 2023
Location: South Hall Complex, Pollock Halls, University of Edinburgh 18 Holyrood Park Road Edinburgh EH16 5AR

You are invited to join us for this one-day Holistic Whole Family Support Conference taking place in person in Edinburgh.

Employability and whole family support practitioners from across Edinburgh and the city region are invited to attend this one-day event. Together we will explore policy and practice related to holistic whole family support and create connections between whole family support and employability networks.

The event is run by Joined Up for Families (part of Capital City Partnership), in partnership with Children, Young People and Families Network (EVOC) and the Supporting Parent and Carers Collaborative.

This event will explore holistic whole family support approaches where the needs of the whole family, rather than one individual, are addressed, and it will provide insight into the wider policy context that informs this approach to service delivery, such as The Promise, as well as the principles of Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) and the incorporation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

It will also highlight innovative and best practice amongst the sector with a variety of speakers, as well as themed workshops delivered by third sector and statutory organisations with the aim of building awareness of the ways that organisations are engaging with families and highlighting the values that underpin the whole family approach to service delivery.

Whether you are new to holistic whole family support or not, this conference will provide an opportunity to meet, connect and learn with like-minded people working to support families out of poverty.

What you can expect:

  • Keynote speakers
  • Interactive themed workshops
  • The chance to connect and network with colleagues including a networking session
  • Breakfast pastries, hot drinks, and lunch
  • The full agenda and programme for the day will follow shortly.

Who should attend?

This event is for managers and caseworkers working in the employability and whole family support sectors, anyone interested in holistic whole family support and employability. The conference is free and open to all. If the topics we are discussing are relevant, you are welcome to attend.

Anti-Trafficking Event

Event date: 2 March 2023
Location: Norton Park Conference Centre, 57 Albion Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5QY.
A multi-disciplinary event developing sustainable solutions to the cycle of trafficking, poverty, homelessness and vulnerability in Edinburgh.

Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world. Despite being illegal in most countries it is thriving. Scotland is no exception and in Edinburgh our capital city we know that it's insidious, hidden in plain sight and the reality is impacting the lives of many.

Poverty is one of the biggest drivers of human trafficking and also one of the results of trafficking. Ending the cycle of human trafficking and exploitation and the disruption of perpetrators is crucial to us achieving our Ending Poverty by 2030 commitment in Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Poverty Commission report published in September 2020 said, “to end poverty in the city, the single biggest transformation Edinburgh could achieve would be to make the experience of seeking help less painful, less complex, more humane, and more compassionate.” The six subsequent areas for action all identify the push and pull factors that we know are associated with human trafficking and exploitation and the continued cycle of poverty that ensues. The need for this kind of intervention which will allow victims of trafficking to escape the poverty which traps them in exploitation and makes them targets for re-trafficking is not only essential for the individuals involved but also for us to see that transformation and systemic change that we so wish for.

Over the last twelve months we have been privileged to listen to colleagues, like yourself, across all sectors regarding the challenges and concerns they have about human trafficking in the City as well as exploring the opportunities and tangible outcomes possible for victims and the strengthening of capacity and morale across agencies.

There is a wealth of persuasive evidence of the value of Anti-Trafficking Partnerships across the UK and beyond and many of these have generously contributed their time and formed our thinking about how Edinburgh can begin the Scottish example of good practice in this area.

For this reason we are delighted to be convening the first Edinburgh Anti-Trafficking Partnership Event on 2 March 2023. It will be the first Partnership of its kind in Scotland and will bring together experts in anti-trafficking work alongside expertise in homelessness, mental health, social work, policing, employability, criminal justice and others, it will include service delivery practitioners and policy makers.

We are pleased to have anti-trafficking, lived experience, partnership experts and others from across the UK coming to share with us including; Kevin Hyland, former UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and Lead of London Metropolitan Police’s Human Trafficking Unit, Major Kathy Betteridge, Director of Anti-Trafficking & Modern Slavery, Salvation Army and UK Government contract holder for Modern Slavery Services in England and Wales, Dr. Paul Rigby, Lecturer in Social Work at University of Stirling and child trafficking expert and Rabiya Ravat, Director of Migrant Help's Slavery Support Services. We are also grateful to anti-trafficking experts from all around Scotland who will assist in facilitating our round table discussions.

Above all, your unique expertise, knowledge, creativity and questioning is essential to us in building this Partnership and achieving solutions to some of the most persistent societal challenges which we face as we battle the growing poverty crisis.

Human trafficking and exploitation is inextricably linked to poverty. The key message from the Edinburgh Poverty Commission’s report is that poverty in Edinburgh is real and damaging, but it can be solved. We hope that you will join with us as we take practical, ground breaking solutions to ending poverty and human trafficking in Edinburgh and across Scotland.

As part of this event SOHTIS will be hosting a free networking lunch at the end of the session giving delegates the opportunity to engage in further informal discussions and make positive connections.

Thursday 2 March 2023, 09:30 – 14:00. Optional networking lunch from 1.30pm.
