Understanding Child Sexual Exploitation and Practice Responses

Recent serious case reviews and independent reports in areas such as Rochdale and Rotherham and Oxford have given us some idea as to the scale of CSE in the UK; and have highlighted missed opportunities where young people could have been protected from abuse and action taken against their abusers.

The Jay Report 2014 highlighted how some 1400 cases of abuse could have been prevented, had early concerns and advice regarding this been acted upon.

We want to help practitioners, local authorities and local safeguarding children boards review and improve responses to CSE in their area
