It’s Time to Act, How to Act: Cross-sectoral work for children with an imprisoned parent
The international conference co-hosted by Children of Prisoners Europe and Exodus is taking place 12 November in Leiden (and online). “Time to Act, How to Act?! will look at the role of key actors across different sectors working in partnership to support and enhance the rights and wellbeing of children impacted by parental imprisonment. The morning session, to be broadcast, will feature a series of interactive presentations about current support initiatives for children impacted by parental imprisonment, in the Netherlands as well as other countries in Europe. Deputy Children’s Ombudsperson of Croatia Maja Gabelica Supljika and Ewelina Startek of Probacja Foundation Poland will provide European perspectives, highlighting policy for children and how stakeholders from arrest to release can act to better protect children’s best interests. The afternoon session will feature collaborative roundtables with conference participants and young ambassadors, to explore ways to really drive home issues key to children impacted by parental imprisonment and improve their situation.
