Risk Support i-THRIVE Community of Practice event

On Monday 14 November the i-THRIVE programme will host its next i-THRIVE Community of Practice shared learning event in Manchester. Greater Manchester and Salford are one of the i-THRIVE national accelerator sites.

This i-THRIVE Community of Practice event will focus on the delivery of care for children and young people in the ‘Getting Risk Support’ needs based group.

Risk support is arguably one of the aspects of the THRIVE framework that is the most controversial. This event will be a really great opportunity for localities and implementation sites to learn about how they might approach delivering risk support locally.

We’re pleased to announce that the day will be opened by Paul Jenkins, Chief Executive of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and Chair of the i-THRIVE Partnership.

This will be followed by a workshop on delivering Risk Support by Professor Peter Fonagy and Peter Fuggle. Peter Fonagy is Chief Executive of The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) and Peter Fuggle is Director of Clinical Services and AMBIT co-lead at AFNCCF.

Professor Miranda Wolpert will be updating the i-THRIVE Community of Practice on the next iteration of the THRIVE conceptual framework, which is launched in November 2016. Miranda Wolpert is the lead author of THRIVE and the Director of the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) and Founder and Director of the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC).

We will also be hearing from two i-THRIVE national accelerator sites; Camden will share their approach to delivering risk support locally and Waltham Forest will share their approach to implementation. Greater Manchester will also be giving an overview of their plans for an i-THRIVE northern hub.

With over 90 members of the i-THRIVE Community of Practice attending the day we expect lots of lively discussion and valuable shared learning between the different implementation sites about their approach to delivering i-THRIVE locally.

On the day you can follow the event on Twitter @iTHRIVEinfo #iTHRIVEcop
