Warwickshire Safeguarding Week - Videos and Resources

During Monday 21st to Friday 25th June 2021 Warwickshire Safeguarding held a week of online bitesize learning events around the topic of Exploitation.

In line with the partnership’s core strategic priority and recently launched new Exploitation Strategy, we placed the focus on exploitation, in all its forms. We would like to use this opportunity to help Warwickshire develop its collective understanding and confidence in combatting and responding to exploitation.

Below is the schedule and link to the resources which were available that week. Please note the video’s will only be available to view until Friday 30th July 2021.

This 2 hour online seminar is designed for senior managers and leaders children’s and adults’ services and the wider multi-agency partnership, and offers an opportunity to explore a more transitional approach to safeguarding, drawing on evidence from research and practice innovation to argue that whole system reform is needed.
