We want to make Rise Conference as accessible to families and children as possible, so that’s why we’ve created a fantastic children’s programme for your children on the Saturday. This programme is for children aged 3 – 11 years. If your child is 3 years old they must be potty trained. For children who are not potty trained, there will be a parenting room available throughout conference for you and your child to use.
On Friday evening there will be no children’s programme running alongside the conference. There will however be a parent led space available if you wish to use it.
