07 March 2011 – 08 March 2011

Conference aim

Many young people are disproportionately involved in risk-taking, antisocial behaviours and other activities which compromise their safety and the safety of others. They are also highly at risk of experiencing reduced opportunities in life through the influence of such factors as low educational attainment, early school leaving, involvement with the law, low socioeconomic status, ethnicity and disability.
