As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, it has regrettably become clear that we cannot meet face-to-face at the SCiP Alliance Conference on 14th May 2020. So, we are making two changes:

The Year of the Service Child Voice Webinar

We will run a virtual (online) event on 14 May 2020 launching the Year of the Service Child Voice report and exploring together ways to put Service children’s voices at the heart of all we do. Click here to book your free webinar place.

More information about our webinar can be found here

SCiP Alliance 2020 Thriving Lives Conference

The SCiP Alliance conference in Birmingham has now been postponed to 20 October 2020 and we are delighted to announce that the programme will include:

  • The Office for Students, who will deliver their first ever analysis of Service children access, outreach and support;
  • A policy panel including inputs from the Scottish Funding Council and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales;
  • The launch of the SCiP Alliance Thriving Lives Toolkit, including: an address by the researchers behind the seven principles of effective support (The University of Derby’s International Centre for Guidance Studies), findings from the national pilot and Uni Connect collaborative evaluation team, and a workshop opportunity to explore the toolkit with those who have been using it;
  • A choice of further workshops, including how to put the Service child voice at the heart of your work, evaluated HE outreach initiatives, and understanding the context of Armed Forces and family life.

Your pre-lockdown conference booking will be automatically transferred to 20th October 2020.
