Procedures and Guidance

Procedures

Our previous Chapter 12 CSE procedure, praised by National Working Group, has been enhanced based on best practice and following feedback from practitioners – Search for 'Child Sexual Exploitation' at this external link will open in a new windowProceduresthis external link will open in a new window.

The procedure contains appendices which can also be accessed and printed off separately - as tools for practitioners. These are:

  • CSE Multi-agency Pathway
  • CSE Initial Screening  Tool
  • CSE Risk Assessment Tool
  • CSE Risk Indicators Guidance Sheet for Practitioners
  • Barnardos ‘Puppet on a String’ Report 2011 - Models of activity in the spectrum of Sexual Exploitation
  • Multi-agency Safety Plan

All frontline practitioners working with children and young people need to be aware of this procedure and know where to find it, plus the associated materials and tools.

Practitioners should use the procedure and tools and participate in training on child sexual exploitation (see Training), and therefore be aware of the key indicators of child sexual exploitation.
