About the Event:
Finding out your child or a child close to you is being exploited can be extremely distressing and upsetting. Most families, parents, carers and guardians want to ensure we can Prevent exploitation from happening and Protect our children and young people from this awful crime. We know that sometimes those who care for children and young people would rather hear from those who understand what they are going through.
We are putting on this Exploitation and Safeguarding Conference which we hope will give everyone the opportunity to hear from those with lived experience and support children and young people Nationally.
This will be held as a live event which means registration is not required, you simply input the link into your web browser, and your input and attendance will remain anonymous.
The aim of the conference is to raise awareness of exploitation and areas we work in daily.
Exploitation happens everywhere and there is always time to talk about it and offer support. The right time is always the earliest opportunity.
