Join Annie, author of Surviving Safeguarding: A parent’s guide to the child protection process for a fascinating insight into the social work world from the perspective of a service user.

She will 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.
