Any professional working with children including the police, social services, probation service, health service, education, voluntary organisations and charities will benefit from attending this conference.

Government report and policy expectations demand that safeguarding children is high on all professional agenda's and it is a key objective that we become more effective at identifying children at risk and protect them from harm.

It will give individuals the opportunity to contribute to a topical area of focus with a great potential to come away with some really valuable information and understanding that we can all inject into our own practice', when asked about the key note speakers Rachel said 'we are so lucky to be inviting such high profile speakers who in their own areas of expertise offer a great deal knowledge to this area.'

The conference is set to be extremely popular with 100 delegates already booked and with only limited places now available it is sure to be a great environment not only for developing best practice but also for networking across a wide variety of sectors.
