Still a Mam

Book your place at our Still a Mam event to hear about our research into women's experiences of child removal

Thursday 23 June 2022, 11.30am-2.30pm

West End Women & Girls Centre, 173 Elswick Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE4 6SQ

Join us as we present the findings from our research into the experience of child removal as told by the mothers. We will be sharing their stories and looking at what changes need to be made to make the system fairer and support the women and children better.

As well as hearing the stories of the women who took part in the research, we will also be showing a screening of ‘Lasagna’ by Open Clasp Theatre. Written by Catrina McHugh MBE and directed by Laura Lindow, in co-creation with the women from Pause, North East, Lasagna shines a spotlight on the gap in services for women who have had multiple children removed, and it celebrates generosity, community and humanity.

If you are a practitioner in the North East working with women facing child removal and want to be involved in making the change, please join us on 23rd June.
