A CELCIS Emerging Insights Series Webinar:

Supporting the shared responsibility to identify and respond to child criminal exploitation now

Join us for the fifth webinar in our CELCIS Emerging Insights SeriesThis webinar is one of a new series of free, live, online webinars where we will hear and share insight, evidence and perspectives about the current critical issues, risks, challenges and learning in child protection.

When: Wednesday 1 May, 10:30-12.00pm

Where: Microsoft Teams

Published in March, Shattered Lives, Stolen Futures, the report of the Jay Review of Criminally Exploited Children commissioned by Action for Children, starkly set out how the lives of children and their families are being blighted by exploitation across the UK and that a new system of prevention, a legal code, and support is required, designed with the explicit purpose of tackling the criminal exploitation of children.

This webinar will provide an opportunity to highlight some of the complex challenges around multi-agency partnerships being able to identify and respond to the criminal exploitation of children and how to bring together existing knowledge, policy and legislation to better support ways to meet the recommendations of the review to protect all children. 

Who will you hear from?

On 1 May we'll be joined by Sharon Maciver, National Director for Child Criminal Exploitation at Action for Children and Donna McEwan, Practice Development Advisor, the Children and Young People's Centre for Justice, who will consider how best to equip practitioners, parents, carers, families and communities to prevent, identify, protect against, and understand the risk of child criminal exploitation, and will discuss about the work underway on the development of a national framework for practice. The session will be chaired by Claire Burns, Director of CELCIS. There will also be space for questions.
