Event: St. Mary’s Centre 10th Annual Conference

Readers may be interested in the forthcoming event:

The St. Mary’s Centre 10th Annual Conference is taking place at Manchester Town Hall on the 23rd and 24th February 2012.

The theme will be Sexual Exploitation: Protecting the Vulnerable.

St. Mary’s Centre was the first sexual assault referral centre in the UK and our conferences have become key annual events for the discussion of new ideas, and a forum for networking within the growing sexual assault aftercare community.

The conference will be addressing a number of issues, including looking at the extent of the problem; prosecuting sexual exploitation cases; protecting young children – child trafficking/exploitation and sexual exploitation among the elderly.

There will be a number of workshops and master classes, including court room skills and surviving cross-examination; successful approaches to tackling sexual exploitation; the challenges of working with children and young people and the latest forensic examination techniques.

It is aimed at, amongst others, social care providers, police, doctors, nurses, counsellors, the legal profession, the third sector and forensic physicians.

Speakers include:

Tim Loughton, MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Children and Families
Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor, Greater Manchester
Dr. George Fernie, President of the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine (FFLM)
Mary Newton, Former Senior Scientist, Forensic Science Service
Dr. Bernadette Butler, Associate Specialist / Sexual Offences Examiner, The Haven, Camberwell
