Code: PCC/21/370 Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) Awareness (EVENT FULL)

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) is a permanent, lifelong disability caused by exposure to alcohol during pregnancy. The affected child often presents with a bewildering complexity of symptoms and behaviours many of which will only present at school age, when the alcohol in pregnancy has been forgotten or is considered irrelevant.


This workshop will raise awareness of the effects of parenatal exposure to alcohol and how we can best manage presenting behaviours for the best outcomes for the child. You will learn what FAS is and how to work with children and families effected by FAS.

Code: PCC/21/374 Family Group Conferences (FGC) Overview

Family Group Conference (FGC) offers all families that receive a pre-proceedings letter from their local authority an opportunity of a FGC meeting. Early independent evaluation found that this use of FGC increased by 15% the number of children safely staying within their family network and decreased by 21% the number of cases going forward in to proceedings.

During some of the most stressful periods of their lives, we have seen families come together in a Family Group Conference to make safe decisions for children at risk. The vast, majority took the opportunity and went on to make workable, safe and sustainable plans for their children

This 90 minute workshop will be led by Lis Gohrisch, Programme Manager for Daybreak Family Group Conferences.
