On the 30th April, Greater Manchester will be hosting a Complex Safeguarding Conference at the Museum of Science and Industry.
The event will outline our journey to date in developing our Complex Safeguarding work across 10 Local Authorities and partners. This will have a specific focus on Child Sexual Exploitation, Child Criminal Exploitation and Modern Slavery.
We will be sharing the research underpinning the approach and the successfully piloted Achieving Change Together Model which provides a relational, strength based and trauma informed approach to working with adolescents with complex needs. We will also be sharing our lessons learned from working collaboratively with our colleagues in Greater Manchester Police’s Organised Crime Partnership. In addition, we will be sharing our learning from working with our national partners on innovative projects to provide best practice in working with families where concerns relate to extra-familial risk and exploitation.
There will be speakers from the Department for Education, Research in Practice, The University of Bedfordshire, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Rochdale Council, Manchester City Council, Challenger (GMP Organised Crime Partnership), The Children’s Society, and many more…
