Safeguarding Vulnerable Children and Adults: Risk and Vulnerability #safeguarding2014
19 May 2014

Monday 19th - Tuesday 20th May

A two day live broadcast from High Wycombe

A decade of scandals, enquiries and reports into abuse and neglect have suggested system blindness and the need for further scrutiny. Changes to practice, new legislation and greater public awareness present new challenges. An intense two day symposium for leaders & practitioners from across the UK and internationally to compare and learn from professional practice to protect and reduce the risk to the vulnerable, whether children or adults. A symposium for professional leaders that will create an online catalogue of professional and special presentations that delegates can share with colleagues and take back to their workplace.
