EurofamNet will run three workshops with invited relevant experts and stakeholders aimed at developing, enhancing and quality assuring our work. The general workshop format will be presentations and discussions focused on key outputs from Working Groups 2, 3 and 4. The workshops will also serve as significant dissemination and network development opportunities. Two workshops will take place in 2021, one focused on enhancing our conceptual and policy understandings of Family Support, and one focused on connecting evaluation and quality standards with professional practice.
