NSPCC conference in Glasgow
Unique Voice were delighted to attend to NSPCC Conference: ‘Helping children who live with a high risk of harm’, hosted in Glasgow’s Lighthouse. One of the key note speakers at the conference was our NSPCC patron Julie Taylor, who featured the project Me+You=4Eva in her presentation as an active vehicle to educate young people in healthy, happy relationships.
We met representatives from the Scottish Government, NSPCC and South Gloucestershire Council to name a few. Good conversations were sparked and overall was a great success.
