Evaluating a new model of tackling child sexual exploitation across England
The Children and Social Work Act: new safeguarding arrangements
This briefing considers the policy and practice implications of the Hub and Spoke evaluation for the implementation of the new safeguarding arrangements outlined in the Children and Social Work Act. This briefing will therefore be of particular interest to independent chairs of LSCBs, new safeguarding partners and local agencies with responsibility for responding to CSE.
The role of the voluntary sector in protecting children from CSE
This briefing summarises the findings of the Hub and Spoke evaluation - highlighting evidence on the role of specialist voluntary sector CSE services in protecting children and young people.
Voluntary and statutory sector partnerships in local responses to CSE
This briefing summarises key findings of the Hub and Spoke evaluation - focusing on evidence that can support the development of effective partnerships between voluntary and statutory sector agencies when responding to CSE.
The challenge of outcmes measurement in CSE services
One of the findings of the Hub and Spoke evaluation was that CSE services struggled to evidence ‘top-level’ outcomes, because of a range of challenges around impact measurement. This briefing considers these in more detail and in the context of the experience of voluntary and community sector organisations more generally.
