Training and events

SaFest 2021

After an extremely successful event last year, we are delighted to announce that SaFest – Devon’s Virtual Safeguarding Festival – will be back for a second year and will take place during the week of 22-26 November 2021.

Throughout this week, Devon Children and Families Partnership (DCFP) will be hosting SaFest 2021 online. The SaFest working group are pleased to announce that they have brought together an exciting range of key note speakers and workshop facilitators from a range of organisations and services, who either work with young people and adolescents or work in organisations that inform and influence best practice. All of the events that take place during SaFest week are free and can be accessed and enjoyed at the click of a mouse!

To view all events running throughout the week and biographies of all the presenters, please see the timetable of all SaFest 2021 events and workshops.

If you’d like to attend any of the sessions, please fill out the booking form to reserve your place.
