Conference Programme


The conference is on 21st and 22nd November. Registration opens at 10am on the 21st and the last session on the 22nd will be finished by 4:30pm.  The full Programme is below.

Our Annual Conference will be examining approaches to the delivery of safeguarding arrangements in the context of a new legislative framework and the revised guidance that will underpin the safeguarding of children. You can expect an engaging, thought-provoking, two-day event offering you multiple ways to network with your colleagues and engage directly in  the key issues impacting upon the safeguarding of children.

Your attendance at Conference will help shape the direction of the Association and influence developments being implemented locally and across the country. This is a critical time to ensure that key leaders and experts in the field of safeguarding are working together to share knowledge and ideas to ensure future arrangements that deliver the best outcomes for children.

Booking Workshops will be available at a later date, but Registration is open now!
