Recent research suggests that many practitioners on the frontline have limited time and skills to investigate child sexual abuse
referrals. Many statutory and voluntary services are implicated in historical abuse issues and are unclear how they can move forward.
Families and young people have been neglected, abused and abandoned. This will explore the contextual debates with some of the
leading thinkers, practitioners and researchers in the UK. The regional conference which is aimed at professionals who are
responsible for the welfare and protection of children, will include a number of talks delivered by the speakers outlined below, as
well the opportunity to debate and ask questions.

Professor Adele Jones, Director of the Centre for Applied Childhood Studies
