Dear colleagues,

Last week Child Hub held a Policy Forum in Vienna, where 60 participants discussed the impact of decentralisation of social services on vulnerable children. We spent two very busy days filled with deep analysis, challenging questions and active interaction. Thanks to those of you who joined us for this event and also who followed our work on Facebook page. You can read more about this Policy Forum below.

Also, in this newsletter you will find a few very interesting free learning opportunities, recent resources and vacancies. Please remember there is always much more on the website. Since our last newsletter in late April, 360 new resources have been published.

We wish you a wonderful weekend,

Child Hub team.
