Today, the SSCB has updated its CSE Action Plan and published a summary of progress to date . The actions contained in the new plan have been agreed by all partners and reflect the feedback we have had from a wide range of stakeholders, including children and their families, inspectorates and front-line staff from across the children’s workforce. The partnership has been able to build on the successful delivery of last year’s action plan.
The revised plan allows the partnership to focus collective efforts on those areas in need of greatest attention, including:
- The need to develop effective responses for vulnerable groups – including children in care, children with additional learning needs/disabilities and unaccompanied asylum seeking children
- Ensuring parents of children at risk of or experiencing CSE are consistently offered and provided with high-quality support
- Developing a better understanding of perpetrators and CSE hotspots in Surrey; and
- Developing better and more sophisticated ways of gathering the views of children and young people to inform operational and strategic decisions
