Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse

The Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse (CSA) has been established to help bring about significant and system-wide change in how child sexual abuse is responded to locally and nationally. 

The CSE will generate and share high quality evidence of what works to prevent and tackle Child Sexual Abuse (including Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)), to inform both policy and practice. 

The Centre is funded by the Home Office, led by Barnardo’s, and works closely with key partners from academic institutions, local authorities, health, education, police, and the voluntary sector.

For more information please see the CSA’s website at https://www.csacentre.org.uk/.

The centre has produced a number of short key messages from research on child sexual exploitation which identifies implications for practice and strategic commissioning.  The purpose of thse documents is to increase professionals’ confidence to take appropriate action based on the best current research evidence.  Each briefing looks at understanding what child sexual exploitation is and the best practice in supporting young people, disrupting and prosecuting offenders and preventing CSE. 

The key messages can be accessed from https://www.csacentre.org.uk/briefings/.
