Open Forum Events Limited is seeking bookings for the 5th National Safeguarding Childrens’ Conference on Thursday 23rd May in Manchester.

The 2019 event – the theme of which is ‘Safeguarding Children: Promoting Welfare-Preventing Harm’ will take place at the Manchester Conference Centre between 8:30am and 4:30pm.

Confirmed speakers include:

Justine Currell, Director, Unseen and Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, Bedfordshire Police
Mark Foster, CEO, Child Protection Company
Carolyne Willow, Director, Article 39
Deborah Jeremiah, Associate, Bevan Brittan
Kamena Dorling, Head of Policy and Programmes, Coram Children’s Legal Centre

According to the organisers, the conference will highlight new developments and address some of the challenges to ensure our children are kept safe from harm and their welfare protected.

“Safeguarding issues arise in many aspects of children’s lives, some more visible than others,” said Open Forum Events Limited.

” The risks associated with being homeless and exposure to criminal exploitation, including, county lines, trafficking and modern-day slavery, are very prevalent and particularly difficult to manage. Online activity creates the opportunities for grooming and sexual exploitation, as well as cyber bullying.”

Why attend this conference?

  • Gain insight into current day thinking and developments within the safeguarding community
  • Hear about the very latest policies that are designed to better protect and support children’s welfare
  • Gain a greater understanding of the new guidance ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ and how multi-agency working can be promoted. Improve understanding of the concerns raised in the latest annual Ofsted report including illegal off rolling of children
