Improving Outcomes for Survivors of Child Abuse (London)
Leading Commissioning & Service Provision for Societal Impact
In the wake of Operation Yew Tree, public perception of the aftermath of child abuse is changing. With more survivors speaking out it is time to address their needs from professional services as well as from families, communities and society as a whole.
Brought to life through the voices of actual survivors and their families, as well as those working and researching in this field, this conference will empower and motivate you to make significant impact in commissioning and providing services that will have significant benefits for survivors as well as the quality of our future society.
The event will provide you with essential understanding of the experiences and needs of adult survivors of childhood maltreatment. It will ensure that you are at the cutting edge of evidence-informed knowledge, as well hearing from those who need you to lead the way in making a difference.
