This network has been created to bring together youth practitioners and relevant stakeholders with safeguarding responsibilities. We create a space for youth organisations to share experiences, insights and useful tools with each other and learn best practice. You will be able to share your experience and thoughts through interactive discussions and have the opportunity to network with other youth organisations across London.
In advance of new training being launched by London Youth this autumn, our substantive session focuses on ‘adultification’. Broadly, this is the process where children are perceived as being more “adult” than their age with a greater focus on perceived risks of harm rather than their vulnerability or experiences of harm. This is linked to wider inequalities in society and can lead to detrimental experiences for young people – especially young people of colour. The practical session will explore the concept and the ways that safeguarding leads in youth work settings can reflect on their practices and organisational culture to ensure children’s rights remain central to building relationships and keeping people safe.
We will close with an open space for information sharing and tackling any issues you’re facing in your role. As with every Safeguarding network we will also deliver updates on recent developments in law and policy.
