Announcing Leeway's 2017 National Domestic Abuse Conference: 'The Impact of Domestic Abuse on Children and Young People'

26 AprPresentation at Leeway Conference 2016

Not long to go until the 2017 Leeway National Domestic Abuse Conference. This takes place on Friday 14 July from 9.00am until 4.00pm in the Norfolk Lounge of Norwich City Football Club and the focus of this year’s conference is “The impact of domestic abuse on children and young people.” Full price tickets are £70 per person with a 10% discount for voluntary organisations.

We believe it's really important for all professionals to recognise the damaging impact that domestic abuse can have on the children and young people that they're working with. Our 2017 conference offers an unparalleled opportunity to hear from a range of experts. Whatever capacity you work in with children and young people, you'll benefit from hearing the viewpoints of professionals in other sectors. We're encouraging teachers, children's contact centre staff, social workers and family practitioners to come along to our 2017 conference and share ideas with police officers, solicitors, probation staff, volunteer agencies and healthcare professionals. 

Early Booking Discount

We are pleased to be able to offer a discount for those making an early commitment. Book your ticket for our conference before May 15th and pay only £63 per person (£60 for voluntary organisations). The price of your ticket includes lunch and refreshments.
