About the Event
The Institute of Policing and Department of Social and Political Science at the University of Chester is pleased to announce the call for abstracts for our upcoming conference: ‘Impact of the pandemic on support within the criminal justice system’. Building on last years’ successful conference, ‘doing support in the pandemic’ this is a one-day, virtual conference seeking to provide a critical, stimulating, engaging and thought-provoking conference where those with direct experience of the criminal justice system can present the realities whilst facing an on-going pandemic. It also seeks to build a community and network of those with lived experience, practitioners and academics in various disciplines with the aim of understanding the realities of support available to the most marginalised in society during the ongoing pandemic.
This conference provides a platform to discuss the challenges, reflect on responses and share best practice by some of the most important organisations involved in safeguarding and supporting the most vulnerable. In the challenging current climate, and its consequential impact on the wider structures in society, it is important not to disregard the wider issues.
We are particularly interested in hearing from practitioners and academics based on the following streams:
• children and young people
• domestic abuse
• homeless services
Oral presentations will be presented via Microsoft Teams using Microsoft Power point. Presentations should last approximately 15 minutes. There will be an additional 5 minutes allocated to each presentation to ensure time for discussion, questions and answers.
We invite you to submit expressions of interest for running workshops/training relating to service support in challenging times. Please outline a clear purpose and focus in the form of an abstract.
Expressions of interests for oral and workshop presentations should be in the form of an abstract, no longer than 200 words. Abstracts should be submitted to event convenors Dr Dean Wilkinson, Charlene Crossley and Dr Jayne Price [email protected]
