Free Event – Grand Victoria Hotel, Bradford | Thursday 13th February 2014 | 8.45am – 4.30pm

After a recent number of high profile reports focusing on child sexual exploitation the aim of the event is to give a holistic view of the different challenges that need to be considered in order to plan a workable strategy to tackle sexual exploitation.

This event will be of interest to those involved in setting policy, planning strategies and awareness raising both in the community and in the Children and Young People’s workforce.
