Inform the development of the Tackling Child Exploitation Support Programme
Research in Practice is inviting professionals to participate in a survey to inform the development and delivery of the Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme.
The programme aims to support local areas to respond to child exploitation and harm from outside the family home, including child sexual exploitation, child criminal exploitation and county lines drug trafficking. Over the next three years, local areas will be able to apply for ‘Bespoke Support’, with these projects focusing on developing a more effective strategic response to extra-familial harm and exploitation.
To help design and deliver the programme, feedback is being gathered from professionals across children’s and adult social care, education, youth offending, health, law enforcement and more. The survey will form part of a wider scoping exercise that will ensure that the programme reflects the sector’s needs and priorities.
Participate in the survey. Deadline 19 August.
We hope that you are as passionate as us about ensuring your voices are heard. To recognise that professionals across the sector are very busy, participants can download a complimentary copy of the Research in Practice publication: Safeguarding and exploitation - complex, contextual and holistic approaches after completing the survey. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
Please note. The TCE Support Programme is aimed at colleagues at a strategic level. Colleagues in direct practice are welcome to take part in the survey, but may not feel able to answer all questions. Survey responses will not require identifying information.
