Developing contextual responses to the abuse and exploitation of young people


London Borough of Hackney Contextual Safeguarding, National Learning Event

Funded through the Department for Education’s (DfE) Social Care Innovation Fund, the London Borough of Hackney are working in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire to jointly develop and implement a whole system approach to Contextual Safeguarding, encompassing both social work practice and wider partnership interventions. This innovative approach to safeguarding children and young people from extra-familial risk is in the process of being implemented across the London Borough of Hackney’s Children and Families Service, involving large-scale system change.

Booking is now open for Hackney's National Learning event on 7 December 2018, at Hackney Town Hall, London E8 1DY. This seminal event aims to provide senior local authority leaders across a range of directorates and key partner agencies with an understanding of the benefits of a Contextual Safeguarding system and will share examples and learning about how this can be effectively implemented in practice.

Advance registration via EventBrite is required.
