The NSPCC has highlighted that the number of CSE cases reported to the charity have risen by almost a third in the past year. These findings reflect the growing risks facing children from sexual exploitation and grooming.

Today up to 1 in 20 children in UK have faced sexual abuse, with estimates suggesting a third of children do not tell anyone of their abuse. Following numerous high-profile failings in recent years, the Home Office has led major national efforts to tackle CSE with enhanced local accountability mechanisms, support programmes for victims and new methods to develop the law enforcement response.

Yet, there is still significant work to be done in enhancing multi-agency collaboration and support improved strategies to effectively identify and prevent CSE. At the centre of this work must be new approaches to information sharing, benchmarking and ensuring operational delivery meets the needs of local safeguarding strategies.

For all services, tackling CSE must now also focus on successful prevention methods. This is both prevention through education for children to improve resilience against offenders online and offline, but also through early intervention and tactics to disrupt the activities of perpetrators.

Sharing best practice and gaining strategic insights from safeguarding leaders has become a key part of advancing the national response to CSE. With this in mind, The Annual Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation Conference 2018 will be taking place on 17th October in Central London to explore the latest policy updates and practical insights for effectively preventing, tackling and identifying CSE across all services.
