Developing contextual responses to the abuse and exploitation of young people


The individual and group characteristics of young people who sexually harm in groups



The Contextual Safeguarding Team have published a new briefing outlining the contextual profiles of young people who display harmful sexual behaviours (HSB) in groups and/or on their own. The briefing provides an important contribution towards understanding of HSB and developing contextual safeguarding practices. In this blog the Contextual Safeguarding Team highlight key findings from the briefing, outlining differences and similarities between the contextual profiles and presenting the implications for practice and service development. 

Only members of the Contextual Safeguarding Network may access the resources on this page.
