Master class on effective engagement with minority and hard to reach families

CAPT is running a master class on effective engagement with minority and hard to reach families.

The event is taking place on Friday 22 March 2013 in London.

Invited experts include:

  • Ann Rowe, Implementation Lead, Department of Health, Family Nurse Partnership Programme
  • Carole Hewison, Deputy Director of The Children’s Foundation and Project Director of the Whoops! Child Safety Project
  • Nighat Taimuri, Senior Community Development Coordinator, Royal Borough of Kingston Council; and
  • Jani Rashid, Head of Diversity and Cohesion, Bradford District Council.

The master class offers an excellent opportunity for senior practitioners, programme and service managers and commissioners to discuss what matters and what works when engaging minority and hard to reach families in education and behaviour change programmes. The event will illustrate good practice in a range of programmes, including how best to engage parents and carers in preventing serious accidental injuries for children.

The aim of this event is to:

  • Share knowledge between commissioners, practitioners, policy leads and academics
  • Bring senior stakeholders in the statutory and voluntary sectors (VCS) together to share learning on effective practice
  • Influence commissioning and delivery of programmes in child accident prevention, public health and children’s and family services
  • Increase the role of the VCS in commissioning and partnership working

Target audience

  • Commissioners of services for children and families in the NHS, public health and local authorities
  • Senior practitioners, programme and service managers involved in all aspects of accident prevention e.g. in health visiting, children’s centres, childcare and family support projects
  • VCS organisations with an interest in child accident prevention programmes


The master class will include contributions from a panel of experts followed by a BBC Question Time style forum. Discussions will draw on the expertise of all participants, including invited experts and senior level practitioners, managers, commissioners and voluntary sector stakeholders.


We request a small contribution of £40 plus VAT per delegate towards the cost of this event, which has received support from the Department for Education. The total cost of attending this event is just £48 including VAT per delegate.
