Grooming and Exploitation: Opening Eyes and Minds Conference

As part of Safeguarding Adults Week 2021, we are delighted to host our annual Safeguarding Adults Conference. This year, the Ann Craft Trust are collaborating with Small Steps , Operation Repeat and Daphne Franks who leads the campaign Justice for Joan, to bring you a unique training opportunity which seeks to raise awareness of how adult grooming can be experienced across the life course.


The conference will explore forms of grooming and exploitation that adults are increasingly at risk from, but in many sectors are rarely discussed.

  • You will go away feeling more confident about spotting the signs of adult grooming and how to make referrals.
  • You will feel more confident about having difficult conversations to facilitate early intervention should you suspect someone is at risk of adult grooming.
  • You will develop a greater understanding of how adults could become at risk from grooming and exploitation.
  • You will learn how organisations and practitioners can adapt their practice to safeguard and support adults at risk of grooming and exploitation.

The Venue

The Conference will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nottingham. We are currently planning to hold this event face to face. The hotel has enhanced cleaning policy during this time and does operate under the IGH Clean Promise. We will alter the format of the event and put additional measures in place in line with government guidance should things change in November.

Address: Crowne Plaza, Wollaton Street, Nottingham, NG1 5RH, United Kingdom

There is free parking available for delegates at the hotel. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from Nottingham railway station and approximately three-minute walk from the ‘Centre Royal’ Tram Stop.


The event is £175 per delegate. This includes refreshments, lunch, car parking at the venue and access to all sessions on the programme.
