Child Safety Event 2018
The theme for 2018's RoSPA Child Safety event was 'Protecting our Future'. The event considered new approaches and good practice in child safety in the home, from core principles of valuing quality of life to evaluating the effectiveness of strategies and programmes.
The event took place in May at the Crowne Plaza Solihull.
