12th of May: Surviving Safeguarding Talk by Annie

Friday 12th of May 11:30-12:30 Safeguarding Survivor “Annie”

This session will be led by “Annie”, a birth mum with extensive experience of the child protection system, public speaker, social work trainer, and writer of “Surviving Safeguarding: A parent’s guide to the child protection process”.

Annie will bring the perspective of the service user to the exhibition and describe, through art, how it feels to be a parent caught up in a punitive, unforgiving, and relentless system. Annie will explain how her recovery from many years of mental health problems has allowed her to gain the strength to find peace and forgiveness, to rebuild her life, to constructively challenge and to launch the first parental advocacy service to bridge the gap between social workers and service users in child protection.
