At Home with Children: Learning from Lockdown Stakeholder Event

The At Home with Children project is running a free online event to share some of the findings from their study exploring the impacts of domestic space and spatial design on child/family wellbeing.

As well as welcoming input from people in housing, social care, child/family services and social activism on their next steps and project outputs, such as their home hack toolkit and housing policy guidance.

The team is particularly interested in having some representation from LGBTQ+ families to make sure what is produced is suitable and useful for them.

This free online event is open to all who are interested in architecture, planning or spatial design.

The event will run on Tuesday 15th February 2021, 10:30am – 12:30pm.

Register by 13th February to ensure your place.⠀https://www.eventbrite.com/e/at-home-with-children-learning-from-lockdown-tickets-245654738937
