We are delighted to invite you to Social Care Wales’s 2021 residential children’s care conference. We welcome practitioners and leaders from across the sector to join us for this event.

The 2021 Residential Children’s Care Conference #ResCYP21 will take the opportunity to reflect and celebrate the resilience and learning of the sector throughout 2020 and the challenges presented by Covid-19.
