Early registration is recommended, covering topics such as self-neglect, loneliness and isolation, babies in lockdown, modern slavery, domestic abuse and child exploitation, 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.
Speaking about the forthcoming conference, Detective Superintendent Allan Harder, Lead for Safeguarding at North Yorkshire Police said:
“It is fantastic to see so many agencies come together under current circumstances to ensure Safeguarding Week 2021 can still take place. This is a vital week in our calendar. It allows experts, professionals, volunteers and members of the public to come together, share best practice and learn about the most recent developments in the field. The programme of events taking place across the week is a reflection of how wide and varied the field of safeguarding is. It is also a great demonstration of the close working across so many agencies and organisations who together ensure the public of North Yorkshire and the East Riding are safe and cared for.”
