  Learning Outcomes:
  • To support the professional network understanding of what Contextual Safeguarding & Exploitation is,  application of this to children at risk of exploitation and thus identify the intervention which can be offered to the child, including early intervention
  • To raise awareness of the application of this framework to community contexts i.e. schools, neighbourhoods and peer groups, with a focus in child safeguarding so that the factors which contribute to harm in these locations can be identified and appropriate intervention implemented.
