For professionals to develop a basic understanding of:
 
Modern Slavery
Child Criminal Exploitation
County Lines

Gang crime

Safeguarding is a huge topic with many categories of abuse, not all of these are necessarily relevant to the children in our care BUT they may be in environments where they are exposed and ultimately at risk so how do we manage this?

The Children’s Society provides a extensive network of frontline services and an army of volunteers work to tackle child poverty and neglect. They support families trapped in debt, support young carers and runaways and stop sexual exploitation. Training on current topics of safeguarding is a must for all professionals.
