How safe are our children? Growing up online

-

The Queen Elizabeth II Centre, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE

Our 6th annual flagship conference for child protection professionals

Children are growing up with an ever-growing focus on all things digital. The digital world offers a whole host of exciting possibilities. But it's essential that we understand the potential risks to children and young people.

With the boundaries between online and 'real life' becoming more and more blurred we're seeing a generation of children grow up in a very different world.

At this year's 2-day conference you'll hear the latest insights and expertise from sector leaders on how professionals can keep children safe in the modern era.
