CVAA Conference 2023: 21st Century Adoption- responding to children’s needs in the modern era

On the 14/15th November 2023, CVAA members and representatives from the Department for Education and Adoption England came together for our annual conference which was focused on 21st Century Adoption.

The two days featured keynote addresses from Lord Simon Woolley, Justice Judd and the Minister for Children Families and Wellbeing.

Key themes over the two days included tackling racial disparity, improving how the adoptionsupport children’s meaningful relationships and identity needs and the importance of bringing in lived experience to everything we do as a sector.
