This lecture, the first in the ELS Northern Province Lecture series 2020, is hosted by Wrigleys Solicitors LLP.
The Rt Worshipful Peter Collier QC, Chancellor of the Diocese of York, will speak on "Safeguarding: From Ball and Banks to Beech via Bell." He describes the lecture as follows: "A review of the development of safeguarding policy and practice in the Church of England against the background of what was happening in the wider world during my life in practice at the bar and on the bench in the areas of crime and child care (1970 to 2018). Also a look at possible ways forward that will enable appropriate risk assessments in the absence of criminal convictions. And wither the CDM in all this?"
