The Famcare Board of IPWSO was delighted to welcome a big group of parents and carers to its first online Family Meeting on the 22nd of April, 2023. To accommodate different time zones, the meeting took place at 2 different times, 9am and 5pm UK time.

Meeting summary

We were pleased to welcome six wonderful speakers. Their presentations are now available, and we hope those of you who were not able to attend will be able to watch them and to share with others who might also find them useful.

“Thank you to all the speakers! Excellent and parent-focused presentations, we could learn a lot again. It is very important to educate families in time. With the right strategy, they adapt to challenges more easily. Thank you so much!”  ~note from parent who attended.
