Conference Brochure

Safeguarding Adolescents and Young Adults: Delivering a Strengths-Based Approach is organized by Healthcare (HC) - UK Conferences and will be held on Nov 23, 2020 at De Vere West One Conference Centre, London, England, United Kingdom.

Program Overview:
We are pleased to announce National Safeguarding Adolescents and Young Adults Conference which this year will focus on improving safeguarding practice: delivering a strengths based approach, transitional safeguarding, contextual safeguarding and complex safeguarding. Through national expert sessions and practical case studies the conference aims to bring together safeguarding leads working with adolescents and young people to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas you are facing in practice including supporting adolescents and young adults
through COVID-19, and developing a strengths based approach to adolescent safeguarding.

The conference will also focus on developing an action plan for contextual safeguarding in working with adolescents: “As well as threats to the welfare of children from within their families, children may be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation from outside their families. These extra-familial threats might arise at school and other educational establishments, from within peer groups, or more widely from within the wider community and/or online. These threats can take a variety of different forms and children can be vulnerable to multiple threats, including: exploitation by criminal gangs and organised crime groups such as county lines; trafficking, online abuse; sexual exploitation and the influences of extremism leading to radicalisation” Working Together to Safeguard Children.

This conference will enable you to:
