This virtual classroom seminar will address local authority powers and duties in relation to young persons i.e. those age 16 and 17 and the other side of transition into adulthood.

It will include the key statutory provisions and how these apply to young people.

Case studies and resources will be included and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
