National Vulnerability and Exploitation Conference 7 & 8 March 2024

Registrations are now open for  the National Vulnerability and Exploitation Conference on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th March 2024.

The event is being hosted by the VKPP, the Hydrant Programme and Tackling Organised Exploitation (TOEX) Programme. The conference is focussed on protecting children and adults affected by vulnerability related risk and harm by looking at cross-cutting issues across the programmes, the Child Sexual Exploitation Taskforce and the wider vulnerability and exploitation landscape. This conference is for both policing and wider stakeholders.

This continues to be a very challenging area facing policing and partners, with increasing levels of demand, complexity, and scrutiny, and this conference will aim to provide policing colleagues and key partners an opportunity to come together to explore the latest knowledge, research and innovation across the vulnerability and exploitation space.

The conference would benefit investigators/practitioners or those who are involved in developing, shaping and leading safeguarding and public protection responses. The conference would also benefit those in the research community who are leading, commissioning and undertaking research in this area.

Delegates will be able to attend the conference either in-person for free (accommodation is not included), at the College of Policing in Ryton, or virtually.

We already have an exciting range of inputs from victims and survivors, as well as key-note speakers, both internal and external to policing and we’ll be announcing more details on this very soon.

As in-person delegate places are limited, we encourage anyone who is interested to register as soon as possible via the link below.
