Evaluating a new model of tackling child sexual exploitation across England


Child Sexual Exploitation Funders' Alliance

Last updated: Tue 08, 2016

The Alexi Project is being funded by The Child Sexual Exploitation Funders' Alliance (CSEFA). They are a group of charitable funders who are aligning resources in order to bring about a step change in how Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is dealt with across the UK. The over-arching aim of their strategy is to position CSE as an integral part of mainstream safeguarding activity.

The strategy comprises three work strands.

  • Development of a Hub and Spoke model of specialist service provision 
  • Promotion of the meaningful involvement of children and young people in their own care, and in service delivery and development 
  • Creation of a knowledge hub to share knowledge about CSE and the evidence base for good practice.

The Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) was commissioned by the Alliance to carry out an evaluation over three years to support the collaboration. Download key messages of the IVAR evaluation below.
