We appreciate feedback on all of our events as it allows us to continue to improve the content and overall experience for delegates. Here is a selection of comments from delegates who have attended our annual Child Protection conference in the past two years. 

The Keeping Children Safe conference demonstrated the excellent work carried out by organisations to protect children from before conception through childhood to preparing them for adulthood.

                Angela Hargreaves, Senior Caseworker, Disclosure Scotland

This was a very beneficial and informative opportunity to review current developments within policy and practice and how they will impact upon all of our ability to keep children safe whilst enabling them to access appropriate opportunities and experiences.

                Salena Begley, Country Development Manager, Family Fund

This conference was not only interesting but extremely educational. I think everyone would leave with the realisation that it's not one person who is responsible for the safety of a child, it's each and every one of us.

                Lyndsay Grant, Managing Director, Little Learners Nursery

Short and to the point, speakers delivered their message. I liked this timing for a conference. Well done!

                James Elliot, Volunteer and Group Development Officer, Chron’s and Colitis UK

The course was packed with interesting information and will make a real, practical difference in my daily practice.

                Ryan Ferrie, Teacher, Head of Year, St Aloysius’ College

Holyrood conferences enable practitioners in Scotland to engage in meaningful dialogue with policy makers, researchers and colleagues from the private, public and third sector.

                Neil Seaton, Head of Year, George Heriot’s School

I found the whole day beneficial from the information provided to networking with other agencies. This provided me with an insight into how other agencies operate.

                Louise Morrison, Unit Manager, Good Shepherd Secure Unit

Very good event and well planned and executed. ..found it all very interesting.  All speakers very good and knowledgeable about child protection and their relevant organisations. This was my first visit a to Holyrood conference was an excellent experience and I look forward to my next visit.
