SaFest 2022 – virtual safeguarding festival

Our fantastic virtual safeguarding festival is taking place next month, with a number of fantastic keynote speeches and workshops on offer.

After an extremely successful event last year, we are delighted to announce that SaFest – Devon’s Virtual Safeguarding Festival – will be back for a third year and will take place during the week of 14-18 November 2022. And this year we have a really exciting programme!

We are fortunate to have keynote addresses from eminent national and international professional leads and researchers, as well as workshops facilitated by experienced colleagues across the professional spectrum. Keynote speakers include Dame Esther Rantzen (founder of Child Line and the Silver Line), Natalie Page (founder and director of Survivor Family Network) and Sheila Taylor (founder of National Working Group (Child Exploitation)). A full schedule of events is available here.

The conference is free and is designed to facilitate professional networking and the sharing of good practice, all while taking a look at the latest research about working with young people in any safeguarding capacity.

Safest is a virtual event facilitated by the Devon SCP and is open to colleagues across the professional network.
