Event description

Description

This conference aims to assist third sector organisations with their front-line safeguarding practices as well looking at the safeguarding system within which they sit.

Keynote presentations will be delivered on:

  • The changing landscape of Safeguarding - Garath Symonds, Assistant Director for Young People, Surrey CC
  • Child Sexual Exploitation - Maria Edwards, Lead Surrey Police
  • Adolescent risk versus organisational risk
  • The risks and opportunities of social media

After a networking lunch and a chance to browse the market place there is a choice of workshops, these will increase the shared understanding of the problems and identify areas that need change in Surrey.

  • Social Media
  • Self Harm
  • Managing Risk
  • Safeguarding young people within small organisations
  • Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Safeguarding & Culture
More information on the content of these workshops can be found at www.surreyyouthfocus.org.uk

At 14:30 the market place will re-open for you to ask you specific safeguarding questions as well as attend drop in talks including:

  • Safer recruitment and induction of staff
  • Keeping young people safe online
  • Funding advice

You are also welcome to use this time to arrange your own meetings with colleagues from across the sector as we will have a dedicated room for you to grab a coffee together.

This is intended to be a strategic conference, not a training event, aimed at safeguarding leads and other strategic managers.

You will be sent a follow up email to request your workshop choices and any access or dietary requirements.
