About this event


RESILIENCE & EXPLOITATION – Build it to Beat it!

To celebrate the 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Haringey’s Emotional Wellbeing Forum, this extended event focusses on how exploitation impacts on young people in Haringey.

Forum members requested a session on exploitation, so we have produced a practice-led conference that focusses on promoting resilience and wellbeing to mitigate against the risks of exploitation. This is a multi-agency event.

This forum will focus on the different aspects of Youth Exploitation with a key resilience and well-being theme. We are coming together as a collective, to think about exploitation in the Haringey context and to highlight local services available for support.

The team have programmed top guest speakers from local authority and third sector organisations who specialise in this complex area of work. Themes will include grooming; young people missing; hidden harm, touching on trauma; gangs; modern slavery; financial exploitation; violence against women and girls; extremism; gambling. Support and referral processes including promoting resilience and wellbeing; drug and alcohol; sexual health; early help and youth services.
