Don't wait for them to tell us: recognising and responding to signs of child sexual abusechevron_right
This week the CSA centre published ‘Key messages from research on identifying and responding to disclosures of child sexual abuse’. In this blog our Practice Improvement Advisor for Social Work, Jane Wiffin, reflects on what those key messages mean for the safety of children and young people and what needs to be done within the statutory child protection system to best respond when children signal or speak out about the abuse and harm they are experiencing.
Senior Research and Evaluation Officer, Sherrelle Parke, reflects on the challenges local authorities face, and why bridging the gap with research knowledge is welcome on the front line.
