A fantastic virtual safeguarding festival is taking place later this month, with a number of fantastic keynote speeches and workshops on offer.
Safest, which will run from 19th to 23rd October, places a spotlight on safeguarding and celebrating adolescents during these challenging times.
The conference is free and is designed to facilitate professional networking and the sharing of good practice, all while taking a look at the latest research about working with young people in any safeguarding capacity.
Born out of our commitment and enthusiasm for Devon’s young people, Safest is a response to the impact of COVID-19 and the importance of maintaining and re-establishing professional relationships that help us do our jobs effectively.
We are fortunate to have keynote addresses from eminent national and international professional leads and researchers, as well as workshops facilitated by experienced colleagues across the professional spectrum. A full schedule of events is available here.
Safest is facilitated by the DCFP, via Microsoft Teams, and is open to colleagues across the professional network.
