A thoughtfully selected panel which demonstrated the varied and diverse approaches needed to tackle VAWG. The speakers were generally passionate, insightful and inspiring. I left feeling excited and positive about the brilliant people we have leading the fight to end VAWG.

Another excellent and thought provoking event with a good mix of speakers who were all very engaging.

Delegate - Supporting Children and Young People with SEND

The Next Steps for Levelling Up: Advancing Public Services of the Future - definitely worth putting the time aside to attend this event. Each of the speakers added a new layer and dimension to the subject of Levelling Up which a must for those who want to be or are a part of the decision making process.

Jaki King

Delegate - The Next Steps for Levelling Up: Advancing Public Services of the Future

The virtual event provided an open forum for informed discussions and honest responses from the presenters. Topics were relevant to today's issues and policy and there are actions I was able to update and take back to my own team.

I felt this was an amazing opportunity to find out much more regarding research and how people are working through the COVID 19 Pandemic, I also felt this was an opportunity to discuss things with others.

An illuminating, if sometimes chilling, presentation of what the digital transformation of criminal justice processes could entail. Attention must be paid to these developments.

Delegate - Transforming Justice Through Technology 2021

A huge thank you to the Institute of Government & Public Policy for their virtual conference on Tackling Domestic Violence and Abuse 2021. Amazing and passionate talks from Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence Jess Philips MP and Domestic Abuse Commissioner Nicole Jacobs. I hope to use this learning in my role as a prison officer, and hopefully help survivors of domestic violence by providing them and their families more support and assisting with their recoveries.
