A conference to support professionals in education, health and welfare working with service children is being held in Falmouth.
The conference, which is being held at the National Maritime Museum, is believed to be the first conference of its kind to be held in Cornwall
Organised by the Service Children Support Network (SCSN) and taking place on Thursday, October 20, the conference aims to equip professionals with the skills to recognise and deal with issues service children face.
The conference is subsidised after the group secured £10k of funding from the National Lottery.
SCSN founder, Joy O’Neill, a service wife with three children, said: “Many staff working within local authorities contact the SCSN saying they would like support but due to budget cutbacks have limited resources to pay for training.
“We plan to use this lottery funding to put on conferences and meetings that should equip professionals with the skills to recognise and deal with issues young people face.”
The conference runs from 9am – 12pm and costs £30 per delegate. To book a place, click here.
