FULLY FUNDED – SaFest 2023 On-line Safeguarding Conference

20th November to 24th November 2023


The Devon Children Safeguarding Partnership (DevonSCP), working closely with our Devon County Council social care colleagues and multi-agency partners is once again hosting our annual week-long safeguarding conference. We’ve been working hard since May this year to put together an exciting and interesting online conference, suitable for anyone who works with children, young people and families.

Nick Meller, REACH, Tina Ley, Turnaround Team, Louise Barraclough, SARC and Anna Garrard, Family Practitioner, as part of the SaFest 2023 working group, have been paramount in organising speakers, co-ordinating the timetable, getting the information together for this programme, producing the flyers and timetable as well as the new SaFest logo.

Thanks to the persuasive powers of Nick we are able to offer fully funded places. This is because Nick has persuaded and cajoled keynote speakers and presenters to present for free or just charge a very small fee; they recognise the importance of being able to disseminate their knowledge, expertise and research to our hard-working multi-agency practitioners.  They have also wanted very much to be involved, due to the success of our last three SaFest conferences.

Click on SaFest 2023 – book your place and see what’s on.

Please feel free to forward this email on to anyone you think would be interested in attending.  We are sharing wide and far, including our colleagues in Torbay, Plymouth, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.
