Conference: The Economics of Child Abuse and Neglect

Join us for this one-day conference to explore the economic impact of child abuse, maltreatment and neglect.

Held at Bournemouth University and organised by Southmead Project, Acts Fast and Dr Elly Hanson, the event will bring together researchers, practitioners, survivors, activists, and policy-makers to learn, share and shape ethical economic decision-making on this issue. As this is both a huge topic and task, the aspiration is that this event will be the first in a series.

The event will explore the economic factors that contribute to the occurrence of child abuse and neglect, and how timely support and intervention both during and following maltreatment can prevent the human and financial costs of this abuse escalating.
