Child Abuse Linked to Faith Or Belief Webinar - The Amber Project

Tuesday, 23 November, 2021 - 14:00 to 16:00

The Amber Project is a multi-agency partnership that seeks to enhance the response to child abuse linked to faith and belief at a Local Authority level. 

A two-hour free training webinar has been developed that clearly explains: (a) what abuse linked to witchcraft and spirit possession is, (b) the factors and indicators professionals need to look out for and (c) what safeguarding actions need to be taken by those identifying cases.

There is an explicit focus on those within the education sector, policing, social care and health.  It is also of benefit to those who are from faith communities and communities working with families and children.

The overarching aim is to increase awareness and reporting of this complex form of abuse and improve the multi-agency response when cases are identified.

This is a free resource and can be delivered anywhere in the country.  Material has been pre-recorded with a resource pack available for those attending sessions delivered locally.
