NSPCC: How Safe Are Our Children? Conference

In June, the NSPCC’s annual conference ‘How safe are our children?’ brought together delegates who work in child protection including social work, education, health and criminal justice. Matt Hancock MP, the then Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, spoke about the government’s plans to hold social media companies to account.

Chief of Strategy of the 5Rights Foundation, Alexandra Evans argued that safety by design and service accountability be urgently addressed by industry and government so that responsibility not be left with children. She also welcomed the publication of the NSPCC report How Safe Are Our Children? that found most online platforms have failed to integrate child safeguarding into their business models or the design of their platforms.

5Rights is also delighted to announce that Baroness Kidron has been nominated as an Honorary Member of the Council of the NSPCC. She said “The NSPCC occupies a crucial role in the lives of UK children and I am proud to be associated with its safeguarding mission and robust voice on behalf of children”.
