Annual Safeguarding Conference: Challenging Neglect: Thinking, Knowing, Doing – Tuesday 27 June 2017 – Sandy Park, Exeter


In a UK-wide general population study in 2011 nearly one in six (16%) of young adults reported having experienced childhood neglect and just under one in ten (9%) reported severe neglect.

Book a place on next year’s Safeguarding Conference to find out the latest messages from research on the impact of neglect on children, how it links to CSE, intra-familial child sexual abuse and harmful sexual behaviours.
