Child Exploitation Forum

Sharing national best practise for working with victims and families experiencing sexual and criminal exploitation

Join us for a free forum for professionals and managers to reflect on, and improve the way they work with parents and families affected by child exploitation.


Our Child Exploitation Forum is an opportunity to hear from other professionals tackling CSE, County Lines / Child Criminal Exploitation, listen to innovative techniques that are having a positive impact and reflect on how to improve multi-agency responses.

You will also have the opportunity to hear lived experiences from parents whose children are being exploited and how the quality of support they receive impacts the safety and wellbeing of their family.
