Children in Wales’ Early Years conference 2017 will focus on research, policy and interventions around children’s creativity, resilience and wellbeing. We aim to contribute to current debates on how to mitigate the effects of adverse childhood experiences, by exploring the needs of specific groups of children and their families, including care experienced children, children experiencing trauma and attachment issues, disabled, refugees, migrants and those living in poverty. Our Keynote presentation will be given by Professor Gordon Harold, University of Sussex.


Delegates will have the opportunity to hear about and debate on a range of views about how early years services should be responding to meeting children’s needs. We will also be offering workshops focusing on interventions that can support creativity, resilience and wellbeing.


Aim of the conference

The event will increase delegates’ understanding and give them the opportunity to consider their own policy and practice as well as sharing experiences and best ideas with other professionals.


Who should attend?

Professionals providing early support and those with a policy lead or interest in children’s creativity, resilience and wellbeing.


Speakers and workshops will be announced in October
