Event Cancelled

 Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the NWG Network and Lucy Faithfull Foundation event due to be held on Tuesday 16 July 2024 at thestudio, Birmingham.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts events do not meet the minimum number required to make them viable. We try to avoid cancelling or postponing events wherever possible but on very rare occasions must do so.

Join us for a unique and exciting event!
Child sexual abuse and exploitation - prevention, emerging trends and themes

Lucy Faithfull Foundation and NWG Network have joined forces to bring you an exciting opportunity to hear from both organisations who are expert in their areas of tackling child sexual abuse and exploitation. Each has strong links with grassroots practitioners and a desire to share what they learn from their work, including what they see as new and emerging trends and themes when dealing with sexual abuse and exploitation.

Aim of the day

  • Hear a frontline, expert perspective on how framing services, interventions, actions and projects within a public health approach to preventing child sexual abuse can have a big impact on protecting children from harm. 
  • Learn how the trends are changing, the methods used by people who offend, and what new initiatives are out there to tackle the problems. 
  • Discuss practical examples of prevention in action including tips based on lessons from real initiatives that are having an impact on children and young people, families, professionals, and those who pose a sexual risk to children.

Who is involved

Their specialist staff protect children by working with people who pose a risk and diverting them from causing harm, supporting individuals and families who have been affected by abuse, including through clinical assessments and interventions, and helping professionals who work with families create safer environments for children.
