On 1st May 2019 we were joined at Durham Cricket Club by over 130 colleagues who listened to the voice of children, young people and families from across the region in what we can only describe as an inspirational day. We had the great pleasure of hearing the Priory Wood School and Beverley School Open Orchestra perform who delivered the most fantastic of performances to our guests who were truly honoured to have had the pleasure of listening to them.
Our aims on the day were to:-
- Let that voice influence the work and ambitions of the network
- Connect individuals from across the broad system
- Enable individuals to hear different views and build relationships
- Share evidence and innovation and agree change is needed to meaningfully improve our children’s future
- Identify benefits a network could bring to local delivery
- Join with our wonderful colleagues working with children from all sectors and organisations wanting to be part of our journey, and deliver on the commitments they designed to make the network effective
- Inform this work in its next steps – event planned for 25th June 2019.
