PAC-UK and Adoption North London are proud to invite education and adoption professionals, adoptive parents and other permanent carers to a conference marking the end of their year-long collaborative project focusing on improving the education experiences of adopted children and those who live with special guardians.

Taking place at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA on Tuesday 9 December 2014 (9.00am – 1.00pm) the conference is an exciting opportunity to hear about good practice in supporting permanently placed children in school.
