    Safeguarding and exploitation - complex, contextual and holistic approaches: Strategic Briefing

    Published: Mar 2019

    Safeguarding and exploitation - complex, contextual and holistic approaches: Strategic Briefing

    There are arguably commonalities between the different forms of exploitation that young people can face. Whilst a targeted focus on issues such as child sexual exploitation (CSE) or gangs has been important in raising awareness and targeting support, exploring the interplay between these harms might allow local services to better respond to the complexities of these issues.

    Exploring current research around what has been termed ‘complex safeguarding’, this Strategic Briefing considers how we can design more effective, cohesive multi-agency approaches to various forms of exploitation.

    Aimed at: Strategic and practice leads, service managers, heads of service, team managers in children's and youth services and specialist services focused on exploitation.
