Please join us for this webinar on Monday 24 October from 4 to 6 pm. Co-sponsored by the Parents Families and Allies Network (PFAN) and ATD Fourth World, the conversation will be led by Tammy Mayes, chair of PFAN, who launched a campaign to change the jargon used by social workers. Of the photo above, Tammy says: ‘It’s like you’re in the middle of the web and all the inqualities of poverty are leading in all directions. We’re stuck in poverty and can’t get out of the divisions between people of different walks of life.’

- Dominic Watters, the author of Social Distance in Social Work: COVID Capsule 1;
- Prof. Jane Tunstill, Children’s services adviser to Making Research Count;
- Kevin Makwikila, an expert-by-experience with the London Borough of Camden Council;

- Lareine Kenmogne, a lived experience activist with ATD and PFAN;
- and Frankie Webb-Huseyin of the Essex Community Foundation.

Tammy chose this image for the webinar because the hands represent everyone coming together as a united front to fight the inequalities of life.
