The welfare of young people and the challenges they face are at the heart of our conference this year as we address the challenges of crime and radicalisation, mental health and wellbeing through the teenage years and the education system.

We, who work for and with young people, need to ensure that we are effective and efficient in all we do so we have sessions to help us hone both our thinking and practice.
