2020 CMN Conference Announcement

Sadly, the board or trustees have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s CMN conference due to take place 26th – 28th June. Due to the uncertainty of the current situation with COVID-19, it would be unwise to continue with this event as planned. We have emailed all those who are booked onto the 2020 Conference with further details. The good news is we are planning to hold the CMN Conference in Summer 2021, which means the full 2020 programme will be deferred to next year. We will continue to keep you updated over the coming weeks and months.

After the hugely successful 2019 CMN Conference we are very excited to invite all our members to the 2020 Caring Matters Now Conference, taking place 26th – 28th June 2020 at the Liddington PGL Conference Centre. Our weekend conference is going to be cram-packed full of activities which will cater for everyone!

What to expect:

  • specific activities for all ages; adult members, teens, children and parents
  • lots of fun outdoor pursuit activities
  • research presentations with Prof. Kinsler and the CMN research team
  • Q&A session with Prof. Kinsler and the CMN research team
  • Psychosocial workshops
  • Off-site activities
  • And much more!

Please note, this is the only opportunity to hear from Prof. Kinsler and the CMN research during 2020.

Attending an event like this could potentially make a huge difference to a person’s self-esteem and confidence. The activities planned would allow adult members, teens, children and parents to bond and build lasting friendships. Having the opportunity to talk to someone who has encountered similar experiences, benefits those affected by CMN immensely and prevents the feeling of isolation.

The 2020 conference is not to be missed and therefore we want to help all our members attend. We are offering an early bird promotion by covering the cost for each person affected by CMN to attend the conference. We hope this support will enable more members and families to attend.
