Dear Members,

Welcome to this week’s edition of the BSA member newsletter. Next week, we will be holding the joint BSA and Sacpa Annual safeguarding conference, which takes place on Thursday (November 18). The conference will explore in detail all the latest key themes and issues relating to safeguarding and child protection, and we’ll be joined by a range of top guest speakers to look at topics including ‘The impact of COVID-19 on safeguarding’; ‘digital safeguarding’; ‘bullying: from banter to abuse’; ‘risk assessments: counterproductive to putting children first?’; ‘safeguarding professionals’, ‘research findings’ and more.  This event is a must for any practitioners working with children, young people or vulnerable individuals – places are still available, so please click on the link above to book your place if you haven’t done so already.
