Integrated working: towards an international platform for exchange 3 October 2017 -

INVITATION

Integrated working among organisations working with and for families is a hot topic, both for policy makers, researchers as for practitioners. In many countries the model of Family Centers is on the forefront. Integrated working offers many opportunities. Addressing fragmentation, a higher accessibility to services for families, sharing expertise between professionals, finding better responses to actual needs … are just some examples. However, at the same time, there are also challenges. 

In order to capture the opportunities and the challenges that arise in different countries, we want to set up an international platform. The main objective is developing a meaningful  and sustainable network (platform) where capacity building and strengthening professional expertise on integrated working is central. 

The main theme for this preconference day is accessibility

  • Vision – How do the different partners define accessibility? What’s their vision? What’s the added value of working in an integrated way in order to strengthen accessibility?
  • Thresholds – What are possible thresholds that families in the different countries cope with? What could be the added value of integrated work in dealing with these thresholds?
  • Inspiration - How do the different partners cope with these thresholds? What are inspiring practices in the different countries?
