Event description

Description

Open Forum Events invite you to join us at Looked After Children: Safeguarding Welfare-Fulfilling Aspirations.

This conference formulates part of an extensive event portfolio on children and young people and is the second meeting focusing specifically on the lives of children within the care system.

The number of children taken into care is at a ten-year high, according to government figures published in November 2018. The official data shows that England has 75,420 looked after children, which represents a 4% increase on the previous year.

The increasing numbers, coupled with cumulative pressure on local authority budgets, means that children’s services are struggling to provide the quality care provision children have a right to expect. Any failings within the system can impact on life chances, make children more vulnerable and expose them to a greater risk of harm and exploitation.

The Looked After Children: Safeguarding Welfare-Fulfilling Aspirations conference will provide delegates with an informed analysis of the current system and provide a clearer understanding of:

  • The programmes of work being undertaken to ensure children in care can flourish through educational attainment and encourage general achievement
  • Some of the current issues within the system that are impacting on the progress of children and curtailing their development into happy and successful adults
  • Factors that influence the health and wellbeing of children in care and some of the measure being adopted to combat them

With an agenda of expertise, this conference will bring together key stakeholders who are involved in children’s services and who are committed to ensuring the welfare and opportunities for children or young people in care are not diminished because of the circumstances in which they find themselves. A difficult and often traumatic start in life must not be allowed to dictate children’s futures.
