Ending Violence Against Children Requires a Strong Social Service Workforce

When children have suffered violence, it is crucial to identify, help, and protect them from further harm. Coordination among child- and adolescent-centered social service, health, and justice systems can promote safety, provide appropriate care and prevent secondary and re-victimization. The social service workforce provides frontline support and response services, as well as creates links between social, health and justice sectors. Strengthening and supporting the social service workforce is an important pillar of any plan to address violence against children.

The aim of the webinar is to examine the important role of the social service workforce in achieving the seven strategies outlined in the INSPIRE package and the accompanying actions laid out in the recently released INSPIRE Implementation Handbook.

Join the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance, the Global Partnership to End Violence, UNICEF, and Pathfinder Countries of the Global Partnership to review initiatives and strategies to strengthen the social service workforce. Participants will be able to pose questions to the speakers.

Save the date: September 27, 2018, 9:00-10:30 am ET. Registration information and full agenda forthcoming.
