Event Summary

The number of safeguarding children’s referrals and child protection plans dropped in 2021*, at the same time as a reported increase in child neglect and abuse.

Join our timely Westminster Insight’s Child Safeguarding Digital Conference to hear from experts across Government, local authorities, children’s services, education, policing, and healthcare. At this digital event, you’ll hear policy updates and practical guidance to improve partnership working in your area and provide vulnerable children and families with the support they need.

Improve your multi-agency response and implement preventative, early intervention strategies to tackle child abuse and neglect.

Learn from interactive discussions and case studies on overcoming barriers presented by the pandemic including communication, monitoring referrals, developing cross-sector processes, and child safeguarding practice reviews.

This full-day event will be delivered live from a custom digital platform. Network with colleagues online and view the content on-demand for 14 days after the event.
