An opportunity to consider the evidence on intervening early to prevent child sexual abuse and exploitation

Tuesday 03 November 2015 10:00AM 
Abbey Conference Centre, 34 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BU

We are joining together with Chance UK to lead a call to action to government and other organisations to protect vulnerable children at risk of sexual abuse and exploitation.

It is possible to intervene earlier in a child’s life. This evidence-led conference will discuss models and ideas for early intervention. It will be an opportunity to join with others working in the community to discuss and identify how we can best intervene early to prevent child sexual abuse before it happens.

We use research and evaluation to ensure the approaches we use are the right ones.

Our recently published Preventing child sexual abuse: towards a national strategy report makes a number of prevention calls and provides evidence and recommendations on how to prevent child sexual abuse.

Chance UK have 20 years experience of delivering an evidenced based, early intervention mentoring programme working with primary school children with behavioural difficulties, who are at risk of  criminal offending behaviour later in life.

They have also developed and researched The Girls Programme to help identify primary school-aged girls vulnerable to sexual abuse and exploitation, and intervening to prevent difficulties in the future.
