Relationship Education Conference 2007

Conference theme: Relationships: twentyfourseven

The 4th National Conference on Relationship Education (Tuesday 6th February 2007) included keynote speakers and time to network and attend practical workshops covering three streams:-

  • Supporting Prisoners and Hard to Reach Groups - Relationships, the key to breaking out of social exclusion
  • Strengthening Family and Community Relationships - Relationships for life, from childhood to old age
