Tackling Child Sexual Abuse

This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on X #CSA

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse recommends that reporting of Child Sexual Abuse should become mandatory. Professionals in positions of trust and in regulated activity with children would have a legal duty to report CSA if they are told about it by the child or perpetrator, if they witness it happening or if they observe ‘recognised indicators’.

The Inquiry reported the scale of the inadequate and negative responses that children and young people have faced upon making disclosures. This conference has been designed to support professionals to identify and respond to child sexual abuse, as early as possible and in an appropriate manner. Our expert speakers will guide you through topics such as; the proposed new mandatory reporting duty, early identification, supporting and responding to disclosures and online facilitated sexual abuse.

“In March 2020, the Office for National Statistics estimated that 3.1 million adults in England and Wales had experienced sexual abuse before the age of 16.”

The Report of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

“If there had been a mandatory law when I reported my child sexual abuse then perhaps my abuser would have been brought to justice. Possibly many other abusers would be prevented from continuing to harm children if their first incidence was reported under a mandatory law.”
