Basis Young People Conference 2021: Improving Responses to Child Exploitation

Basis Young People

Basis Young People are excited to announce their third biennial conference  Improving Responses to Child Exploitation on Tuesday 16th March 2021.

Taking place during the week of Child Exploitation Awareness Day, the conference will promote the vital message that “Child Exploitation Hasn’t Gone Away”. Bringing together speakers from across the field, plenaries and workshops spanning a range of issues will address how professionals can work together to improve societal and professional responses to the continued exploitation of children, ensuring victims and survivors are at the heart of all the work we do. Such work is more vital now than ever as these urgent subjects have threatened to become lost in news cycles and partnership work within child protection faces unprecedented obstacles.

Throughout the day, speakers and facilitators will share cutting edge research and innovative practice developments from across the country with a particular focus on centring experiences and voices that are too often unheard within the field of child exploitation.

Confirmed speakers include:  Holly Archer and Scarlett Jones (The Holly Project); Maria Cassidy (Families and Communities Lead, NWG); Jahnine Davis (ListenUp Research Co-Founder and Director; Researcher, Kingston University); Gemma Scire (Systems Change Researcher); Speakers from SPACE (Stop and Prevent Adolescent Criminal Exploitation); Camille Warrington (Senior Research Fellow, University of Bedfordshire); Dominic Willmott (Senior Lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University); Practitioners from Basis Young People.  

The conference will be held online due to COVID restrictions. Tickets are priced at £40; £30 for charities and students; and £25 if 5 or more tickets are purchased at the same time.
