Virtual Conference: peer-on-peer abuse, spotting the signs

19 October @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Peer-on-peer abuse is now recognised as a significant growth area of abuse suffered by young people. Included in KCSiE 2019 for England and Wales and in the specific sexual harassment guidance for schools, this is a topic professionals need to recognise and understand.

This is a particularly sensitive issue where both the victim and the perpetrator are in need of significant support. This event is suitable for any professional working with children and teenagers.

This one-day conference will be running virtually via Zoom. Joining details will be sent out to delegates 24-48hrs before the conference with clear instructions.
