CHILDREN 1ST is delighted to announce that on 10th February 2011 at the Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor Hotel, Haymarket, Esther Rantzen CBE, journalist and founder of ChildLine, and the Rt Hon Elish Angiolini QC Lord Advocate will be keynote speakers at ‘Voice of the Child in the Judicial System’.

Esther Rantzen CBE will draw on her considerable experience and passion as a campaigner for child welfare to look at what needs to be improved for children involved as witnesses or victims in court.

The Rt Hon Elish Angiolini QC, Lord Advocate brings her significant commitment to improvements for vulnerable witnesses to a keynote address that will look at recent developments on this issue and the challenges that lie ahead.

As well as these high-profile and influential keynote speakers, this event will also hear from young people about their own experiences, from speakers with in-depth knowledge of recent policy and practice developments around children’s participation in court or in Children’s Hearings, and will debate what change is still needed.

  1. For the avoidance of doubt, this event is run by Children 1st, and not by me. If anyone has any enquiries about the conference or its speakers, please contact Children 1st directly. Thank-you.
