On Tuesday 19 April, the School of Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University and Nottinghamshire County Council hosted a unique conference exploring What Works In Parenting Support. Leon Feinstein, Director of the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF), delivered a thought-provoking and engaging keynote speech on the work of the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF), its Guidebook, and the use of evidence to inform policy and practice.

The conference also showcased the innovative work and impact of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project between the Council and the University. The event was a fantastic opportunity for local authorities, managers, policy makers, practitioners and researchers to come together to share best practice and good quality evidence on parenting support.

The conference attracted 70 attendees from a wide range of organisations. Among them were a number of local authorities, charitable organisations and academics. The organisers were also delighted to welcome exhibitors from the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (BASPCAN) and Seymour Research Ltd. Feedback on the event was overwhelmingly positive, with attendees particularly valuing the excellent key note speech, the opportunity to learn about the innovative model of the KTP, and the chance to network with a wide range of individuals from academia, policy making and practice.

For more information on the event email Catherine Goodall, KTP Design and Implementation Analyst.
