How do we uphold safeguarding with so many of our ways of working dramatically changed due to Covid-19? This panel discussion webinar explores how to keep abreast of new and emerging forms of abuse and neglect given the challenges professionals are facing, and how to make sure the working practices of the foreseeable future can protect those who are vulnerable.
