The first in a series of four seminars. It introduced the concept of intersectionality and debates its meanings and purposes for understanding childhood identities and inequalities. It explored the different ways in which this framework can be put into practice by practitioners and policy makers. The seminar involved a combination of short presentations, group discussions and a plenary conversation and addressed the following questions:
An independent site where anyone can share their stories of adult social care or the NHS. The site covers adult social services (as well as NHS services) in England, giving service users, their families and carers the opportunity to publish their personal experiences, good or bad, of the care system.
An independent site about personal experiences of UK health services, good or bad. It is about honest and meaningful conversations between patients and health services.
