Safeguarding and Protecting Every Child!

The Second National Early Years Safeguarding
and Child Protection Conference

Conference hashtag for Twitter: #EYSPEC

This important and thought-provoking conference has been organised to support the Early Years sector, to enable educators to work proactively in a solution-driven and collaborative environment with children and their families.

Background

In January 2016, prompted by the number of questions and queries that sector colleagues were posting on social media, as well as cuts in professional development that link to safeguarding and child protection awareness, Laura Henry sensed a need for a group on Facebook and started Early Years Safeguarding and Child Protection. The group is very successful and is the go-to place for colleagues to share and ask questions on safeguarding and child protection issues. This can only help to ensure that every child is protected and kept safe. There are close to 4,000 members now in this bespoke group and it was from this small start that Laura felt there was a need to come together and explore some of the issues.

 Keynote Speakers

  • Leroy Logan MBE, PhD, BSc – Retired Police Superintendent, Security Consultant & Voluntary Sector Practitioner
  • Leyla Hussein – a trained Psychotherapist and a multi-award winning campaigner on FGM and gender rights
  • Jane Evans – Parenting and Childhood Trauma Expert
  • Dr Stuart Shanker – a Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Psychology at York University and the CEO of the MEHRIT Centre

Workshops

  • Tracy Seed – Holistic educator, coach and trainer
  • Susan Taylor – a registered and qualified social worker with over 17 years’ experience.
  • Sarah Goff – an expert in the field of safeguarding disabled children
