“Social workers will be expected to be more aware of the signs of witchcraft and faith-related child abuse when ministers publish research on the issue later this year."
Community Care’s Conference on Working with BME and Faith Communities to Protect Children and Young People explores how to manage child protection concerns in minority and faith communities. 
This conference explores how to:
  • Recognise disguised compliance when engaging with families from diverse cultural backgrounds and faith communities
  • Break down the language barriers to avoid collusion with interpreters
  • Accept families’ cultural differences within the framework of the law
Hear detailed case studies on:
  • Protecting children at risk of forced marriage
  • Tackling issues related to spirit possession
  • Identifying and safeguarding girls who are possibly subject to FGM
