THE FELLOWSHIP ANNUAL EVENT
Each year the Fellowship comes together for two days to learn, connect, share ideas and be inspired. The event represents a chance for fellows to come together to reflect on how they can be better leaders for children and families, and have a greater impact on the communities they support. Influential speakers motivate the group, while fellows and other experts in their field deliver workshops on practice, policy and innovation.
