The 30th Anniversary of The Children Act 1989: Is It Still Fit For Purpose?

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 31st Jan 2019

The Children Act 1989 embodied a change in philosophy by making the child’s welfare the courts ‘paramount’ concern, moving away from the concept of parental rights towards the right of the child. It embraced the idea of shared parental rights and responsibilities and that children are best cared for within their families but not at the expense of suffering avoidable significant harm. 

Has  the  Act  done  right by  children  since 1989?  Has  it  adapted  to  the  challenges of childhood and society?

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
