Safeguarding is everybody's business

A virtual, online conference will take place between Monday 21 and Friday 25 June, to mark Safeguarding Week 2021.

Partners from Children's Safeguarding Partnerships, Safeguarding Adults Boards, Community Safety Partnerships across North Yorkshire, the City of York and East Riding have come together and developed an extensive programme of learning events, seminars and interactive sessions which all underpin this year's theme - 'Safeguarding is everybody's business'.

The conference boasts a packed programme of sessions, with the majority catering for both members of the public who want to learn more about safeguarding, and professionals wanting to develop their skills and knowledge.

Covering topics such as babies in lockdown child exploitation, modern slavery, domestic abuse, self-neglect, loneliness and isolation, the sessions have been designed to stimulate discussion, spark innovation and share best practice. Each session will be delivered by inspirational and motivational speakers, all of whom are experts in their field.

The full programme of events is open for viewing and booking via the North Yorkshire Police Eventbrite webpage. Early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
