On 16 November 2023, BSCP held our annual conference at Millennium Point: ‘Working as Partners to Safeguard Children from Domestic Abuse’.
The conference brought together a wide range of expert speakers and insightful workshops, sharing valuable insights into how domestic abuse not only affects children and families, but how practitioners can spot the signs and help support victims. Attendees actively engaged in the Domestic Abuse Prevention Strategy 2024-2029, through the ‘Be Heard’ online survey and a BSCP survey to check practitioners’ confidence on spotting signs of domestic abuse and supporting child victims was also conducted, with live results on the day. It was a brilliant event with over 220 delegates, 65% of those attending for the first time. A selection of partners from Education, Birmingham Children’s Trust, Early Years, Faith groups, Health, Police, Private Voluntary Organisations, and more were in attendance.
