Developing contextual responses to the abuse and exploitation of young people


Reflections on the Youth Violence Commission Final Report through the lens of Contextual Safeguarding



Luke Billingham is a Youth and Community worker in London, and co-authored the Youth Violence Commission Final Report. This blog is written in a personal capacity, and the views presented here are his, not the Commission’s. The blog provides a brief summary of the Final Report and the “#FinalWord” event (at which young experts shared their personal reflections on its findings), before going on to explore the aspects of the report which may be of particular interest to practitioners interested in contextual safeguarding approaches.
