This one day conference is the fourth event hosted by Child Studies at King’s College London. ‘Participation into Practice’ will be of interest to all those – including academics, professionals and policy makers – concerned with the importance of direct research with children and young people in influencing public policy and practice. In keeping with the multi-disciplinary and practice-oriented focus of the Child Studies programme at King’s, speakers* will include academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines.

Proceeds will be donated to the award-winning Family Drug and Alcohol Court, part of Coram.

The MA Child Studies/International Child Studies programmes at King’s promote a multi-disciplinary approach to work with vulnerable children and young people, underpinned by a children’s rights perspective.

*Please note that the organisers reserve the right to change the programme at short notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
