Tackling child sexual exploitation is a key priority for both Government and local services. Despite significant progress, more must be done to safeguard children from CSE. The Government continues to push forward its national strategy under the pillars of tackling offending, reducing vulnerability and supporting victims and survivors.
Join us in March for an up-to-date brief on what is being done at a national and local level to combat CSE. You will explore the Government’s strategy and learn from good practice case studies to take back and implement in your own setting.
Key Issues to be Addressed:
- Update of Government action to tackle CSE and the national picture
- Funding and commissioning update: opportunities for frontline services
- Strengthening multi-agency working across local authorities, police, health services, the third sector and other partners
- The Children and Social Work Act 2017 and its impact on child safeguarding
- The key role of the criminal justice system in preventing CSE and punishing offenders
- Practical steps to tackle CSE and advice from successful local strategies
- Working with local partners to build resilience and ensure a robust response to CSE
