Harmful Sexual Behaviour – Working Perspectives

Multi-agency staff from Croydon took part in a national survey which sought to understand how professionals describe their knowledge, skills and confidence in relation to supporting children and young people displaying harmful sexual behaviour. The research was led by Research in Practice and the National Children’s Bureau. Dez Holme from Research in Practice, considers what works well in developing capabilities, and what further support staff need. You can read a summary of the findings, download the national report and download the local results from the links below.
