Trinity Park Conference and Events Centre, Felixstowe Road, Ipswich, IP3 8UH

A landmark conference for health, police, social care and education professionals from the East of England.

This year's keynote has been confirmed as Nazir Afzal OBE.  Nazir was the Chief Crown Prosecutor of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for North West England from 2011 to 2015.  He was the first Muslim to be appointed to such a position and was Britain's most senior Muslim lawyer within the CPS. He has campaigned for women's rights and spoken out against forced marriage, female genital mutilation and honour killings.  One of his first decisions on becoming a chief crown prosecutor was to initiate prosecutions in the case of the Rochdale sex trafficking gang, overturning an earlier decision by the CPS.

This conference aims to:

  • Let you hear the voice of the service user and bear this in mind when planning and delivering services
  • Enable students and delegates to understand the challenges of service users and other professionals in providing seamless care
  • Gain a wider understanding of service users and effective service user pathways
  • Learn from and about other professionals

Please note that this conference counts as 6.5 hours of CPD and you will receive a certificate of attendance.

Delegate price : £50 including lunch and refreshements
