website and resources
A new online resource developed by the Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme supports cross-sector leaders achieve system change in tackling child exploitation.
Child exploitation does not fall neatly into categories or types of abuse, nor does exploitation correspond exclusively to particular professional backgrounds, or to one agency above another. The new resources featured on the dedicated TCE support programme website are structured around key topics to provide a cross-cutting understanding of exploitation. It includes:
- Evidence – primary and participatory research, data and practitioner perspectives to highlight what is known (and not currently known) about the nature, impact and effective responses to exploitation.
- Local responses – policy briefings, partnership facilitation tools, data and more designed to support areas to develop their own bespoke response to child exploitation.
- Joining the dots – strategic resources to constructively challenge and prompt new and innovative thinking.
Resources on emerging issues will also be featured as and when the knowledge base is built in this area. The TCE Support programme is welcoming resource submissions to consider from across the sector; please share these via the call for practice form.
