The term "Safeguarding Children" is defined as "the process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully".
In recognising the paramount importance of safeguarding children and young people, Open Forum Events have hosted two sell out events in Manchester during 2022. It is with excitement we announce that the Safeguarding Children 2023 conference is moving to London
Every day, throughout the UK, the safeguarding system protects many children who are at risk of experiencing harm, abuse or exploitation. However, the recently published report from the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel has concluded that the tragic deaths of Arthur Labinjo Hughes and Star Hobson are “not isolated incidents” and the way child protection is approached needs to “change fundamentally”.
This conference will highlight new developments and address some of the challenges to ensure our children are kept safe from harm and their welfare protected.
The agenda will feature expert speakers in child safeguarding and is designed to bring together all stakeholders for a day of information sharing, discussion and networking to ensure children are kept safe from abuse and neglect.
