Child Care History Network is planning a conference on Wednesday 1 November at Hinsley Hall in Leeds. The main paper will be by Peter Higginbotham, whose book on children’s homes has just been published.
David Lane will be speaking about the findings of the Northern Ireland Inquiry concerning children’s homes.
They are hoping to have a variety of short inputs (say, 3 x 10 minutes each) from people who have experienced life in children’s homes.
The intention would be to share experiences about what life was really like in homes – neither setting out to pick out the worst practice, nor whitewashing things either. If you are interested in sharing your experience at the conference then contact Darren at firstname.lastname@example.org
