SIRCC 2021

Online Event
The focus for SIRCC 2021 Online will be on what is needed to support the residential child care workforce as they care for children and young people. Following on from the reports from the Independent Care Review and the setting up of The Promise to facilitate and support change, wherever that change needs to happen, it’s essential that this community of practitioners is in the best place possible to support, develop and love those in their care.
