The Savile Revelations: Lessons For Protecting Children And Young People

February 13, 2013

[Edinburgh] 13th March, 1pm – 3pm.

Children 1st chief executive Anne Houston and Centre For Research On Families And Relationships (CRFR) research associate Sarah Nelson have both been prominent in media comment on the recent stream of historic abuse revelations relating to Jimmy Savile and other alleged perpetrators.

They have also been publicly outspoken, along with other prominent child protection specialists, in expressing “grave concern” at an apparent decline in priority for child sexual abuse in Scottish local authority social work.

In this seminar they will discuss the implications of the Savile revelations for future protection of children and young people from sexual abuse, and on ways of promoting a more supportive atmosphere for adults to report historic abuse.

This seminar will be of interest to academics and practitioners working with children and families – in research, in social work, social policy, family policy and other fields. Attendance is free however places are limited.  To reserve a place contact L.marshall@ed.ac.uk or 0131 651 3001
