    About the webinar

    What difference does it make when parents are partners or co-workers in efforts to improve children’s health, development and wellbeing?

    This webinar explores the importance and role of a family-centred approach to optimising efforts to engage and support children and families.  

    It uses Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC) as a case study. EPEC is a community-based program training local parents to run parenting groups. It was developed in the UK and is led in Australia by CCCH.

    What the webinar will cover:

    • the importance of partnering, codesigning, and coproducing with parents 
    • an introduction to EPEC 
    • insights into the experience of parents
    • research findings on parents and professionals working together 
    • how collaborative approaches foster engagement.

    Participants will  have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the panel.
