Description

The aim of this conference is to bring interested parties together to enhance knowledge and understanding of some of the key issues facing young people today, to share good practice and to promote discussion on how to create safe cultures of young people.

This conference is being convened with the understanding that young people are increasingly identified as a vulnerable group whose welfare and safety is being impacted on in a multitude of ways. A rising number of young people have been identified as at risk of poverty or social exclusion, harmful sexual behavior, mental health issues, interpersonal violence, substance misuse, and increased health risk associated with life style factors. Building effective community support, increased knowledge, and greater understanding of the issues effecting young people will help create safer cultures and better outcomes for young people. Importantly the health and well-being of young people is at the heart of delivery for schools, local authorities, third sector agencies and improving the safety of young people is identified as a key priority for a multitude of services.

This is an exceptional opportunity for those interested in creating safe cultures for young people to come together to take part in presentations, workshops and other information sharing activities in a central and accessible location in the Tees Valley.
