Ep 002: Supporting Safeguarding Professionals with Wendy Thorogood
Play • 25 min

Join me with my guest Wendy Thorogood, President of the Association of  Child Protection Professionals. The conversation delved into the question of viewing the system in isolation when we know ‘there’s no child without adults.’ We considered Wendy’s experience of supporting safeguarding professionals over the last year, including embracing technology, considering how events have changed & realising the magic is in the quality of the conversation.

Wendy’s invitation to you is to connect with her about ‘the unobvious’. How could you refuse?
