Our Joint Annual Conference was held on 29th October 2019 and was well attended by safeguarding leads from across a broad range of organisations that work with both children and adults in Stockport.

Sessions from the day included:

  • children and young people – when their parents are coping with dementia
  • Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) – the replacement of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) and how this can impact children 16 yrs +
  • impact of self-neglect on young carers
  • hoarding

The Learning and Development Subgroup will start planning for the 2020 conference. One of the areas that people have also asked to be included is working with trauma. If you’ve any other areas of safeguarding work that you’d like to be considered for inclusion on the agenda, please let us know.
