BCN Launches New Virtual Community of Practice for Eastern and Southern Africa

Posted By: • March 30th, 2016

Better Care Network (BCN), a member of the RISE Global Reference Group, has launched a new virtual platform, Care to Practice: supporting children’s care practitioners in Eastern and Southern Africa.

This online collaborative forms part of BCN’s ongoing work with partners via its Regional Initiative on Children without Appropriate Family Care to help build the evidence-base and facilitate knowledge exchange with the goal of supporting family strengthening and improved alternative care. The formation of this online community of practice is in response to calls for greater access to opportunities for information exchange and learning experiences within the region.

As an online forum, Care to Practice is a space for connecting with practitioners in the region and provides opportunities for joint learning and peer support, including discussions on regional practices, challenges and innovations. Participants will also have access to up-to-date research and learning resources and be able to join online events and webinars led by a range of experienced global and regional practitioners and researchers.

If you are an interested practitioner working in the Eastern and Southern African region who would like to join Care to Practice, please contact: [email protected]
