The Safeguarding Partnership recently hosted two virtual workshops presented by Dr Jenny Molloy during which she spoke about her lived experiences of Neglect and Child Sexual Exploitation. The events where attended by approx. 260 staff from across the Partnership including local Charities, Health, Schools, Children’s Social Care, Family Support Service, Thames Valley Police and the Probation Service.
Dr Molloy gave an extremely thought provoking, candid reflection of her lived childhood experiences, from being a child experiencing neglect, her life under the care of Hackney Social Services and the dynamics between her and her siblings, her experiences of sexual exploitation, recognising the abuse and impact this has had on her life. Dr Molloy explained the emotions that accompanied her throughout life.
The content was raw and emotional, and at times difficult to hear. Dr Molloy’s delivery throughout the workshop was aimed at ‘you’ the individual audience member. This enabled delegates to reflect on their own working practise and the lasting impact they have in the children’s lives they support.
The Feedback from delegates has all been extremely positive, below are some examples:
