It's 40 years since the formation of BAAF, and in fact the CoramBAAF Health Group (in various forms) has been in existence longer, since 1964. The health conference has always sought to bring practitioners together to discuss emerging developments in practice, share new information and highlight innovation.

2020 has brought with it many challenges and we have faced an extremely difficult start to the new decade.


The day will include a mix of presentations and interactive workshop sessions so people can learn as well as share ideas and interact with each other.

In a fast-moving world, looked after and adopted children, carers and professionals all face emerging new challenges. We will explore what’s new in research and practice and look to the future.


Our keynote speaker is Professor Sir Terence Stephenson, Nuffield Professor of Child Health, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, who will give a presentation on ‘Challenges and Opportunities in Child Health’

Workshops and presentations will include:

Professor Amanda Sacker, University College of London, will present findings from the ‘Looked after children grown up study’ and ‘Adult outcomes after being cared for in an institutional or family setting’.

‘Vulnerable children in a digital world’ Adrienne Katz, Director of Youthworks Consulting Ltd

‘Childhood mental health, and challenges and opportunities for research and practice’ by Professor Andrea Danese, King’s College London

‘Aligning SEND and LAC processes’ presented by National Children’s Bureau

‘Regional Adoption Agencies… the story so far’

Further workshops to be announced.
