One week to go! Annual Safeguarding Conference – Challenging neglect: Thinking, knowing, doing – 27th June 2017

75% of 430 children subject to a child protection plan in Devon are on a plan due to neglect.

Don’t let your pupils be one of the statistics and join us in 1 week!

The conference to understand and challenge neglect.  In a UK-Wide general population study in 2011 nearly one in six (16%) of young adults have experienced childhood neglect and just under one in ten (9%) reported severe neglect.
