CHSCB Child Sexual Exploitation Strategy (Feb 15)

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) can take many forms and we all have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.  The City and Hackney Safeguarding Children Board (CHSCB), as part of its ongoing commitment to preventing, identifying and tackling the problem of CSE, has published its new multi-agency CSE strategy.  This strategy shows a wide range of ambition and potential for partnerships to work together.

The strategy sets out our vision, principles and five key strategic areas:

  • Knowing our problem, knowing our response
  • Strong leadership
  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Protection and support
  • Disruption and prosecution

Two specific action plans have been developed, that reflect the current approach to tackling CSE across the City of London and the London Borough of Hackney.  The joint CSE steering group will provide co-ordination and monitoring of the action plans to ensure that there is a combined and consistent approach across all partners.

The strategy can be found here.
