Sexually exploited and abused children - what the best leadership looks like in the multi-agency fight to protect society's most vulnerable children. 


Recent high profile cases have highlighted the devastating effects of sexual abuse on children by those offenders who exploit their vulnerability, through use of the internet or other means.

This forum will be of most benefit to Force Chief Officers and PCCs, and Heads of Local Safeguarding Children Boards and will facilitate their discussions on key issues and allow them to receive input from the College of Policing about the complex environment of operating within a multi-agency response.

This FREE OF CHARGE forum will prove to be extremely popular - BOOK NOW to secure your place by completing the booking form.
