Our annual How safe are our children? conference provides child protection professionals with the opportunity to debate, question and share insights about the latest strategies, policies and programmes to prevent child abuse and protect children.
The 2018 event, dedicated to protecting children online, was attended by over 600 delegates who work in various areas of child protection including social work, education, health and criminal justice. It was also the launch event for our How safe are our children? 2018 report, the most comprehensive overview of child protection in the UK.
Keynote speeches at the 2018 conference included Matt Hancock MP, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, who gave an update on the government's plans to hold social media companies to account; and David Austin, chief executive of the British Board of Film Classification, who spoke about the need to classify online content as well as traditional offline content.
