The event will provide Shropshire practitioners and staff from organisations who may be working with or wish to work with hard to reach groups, the opportunity to gain a better understanding of forced marriage, girls and gangs, child sexual exploitation and the gypsy traveller community, the issues they face, what support is needed and gain access to useful resources and information.
It will also be an excellent networking opportunity for practitioners.
