Children's social care forum

It has been a busy year for those involved in working with children and young people, and those dealing with the risks and claims arising as a consequence. For practitioners, and managers many of whom are working from home, there have also been legal and cultural developments that will have a significant impact on the way in which both services need to be run and claims handled in the future – these will require difficult nuanced decisions to be made by senior social care managers both in the private and public sector, and require their engagement at a much earlier stage than might otherwise be the case.

Our team are delighted to invite you to this year’s social care forum where we will discuss:

  • Developments on liability for friends and family foster placements, including a decision of August 2021
  • Success stories and lessons learned from pursuing recoveries from abusers in child sex abuse cases
  • The impact of the ABI Code of Practice for responding to civil claims for child sexual abuse following recommendations of the IICSA

This online event is aimed at directors and senior managers of children’s care providers, fostering agencies, Local Authorities, children’s charities, senior claims handlers and their insurers.

This abbreviated online learning is an opportunity for you to hear from 3 of our stable of experienced social care lawyers working at the cutting edge of child sexual abuse litigation and safeguarding law. It is intended that those attending will be able to use materials and information shared to improve the practiced development of colleagues and the service you deliver to your client groups now.

There will be plenty of time within the update for questions to be raised with our expert panel of speakers. Please do send questions prior to or throughout the session.

We look forward to welcoming you to our forum.
