Mind the Gap:

Redesigning the Safeguarding System for Adolescence and Early Adulthood


Dez Holmes

Director Research in Practice


This free online seminar will explore a more transitional approach to safeguarding, drawing on evidence from research and practice innovation to argue that whole system reform is needed.

Transitional safeguarding is an emerging concept gaining traction in many local areas as they seek to more effectively respond to the needs of adolescents and young adults.

Transition to adulthood is a process, not an event. Harm and the effects of harm do not stop at 18. Yet the current safeguarding system is based on binary notions of childhood and adulthood – meaning that young people too often fall through the gaps.
