Hodge goes online for Children's Fund virtual conference

Children's minister Margaret Hodge and senior academics will answer questions on how to improve the protection and social inclusion of children in a seven-day virtual conference next month.

Voluntary sector service providers Barnardo's, the NSPCC, Save the Children, NCH and NHS professionals in preventative services are taking part in the event, while the public can participate via the internet.

The National Evaluation of the Children's Fund online conference already has 500 delegates and expects many of members worldwide to participate in the discussions, to be held from 17-24 June.

The evaluation is a three-year research project, which is run by the University of Birmingham and Institute of Education, and measures the success of the Children's Fund in supporting interventions to prevent the social exclusion of children.
