Commissioning of services addressing child sexual abuse and exploitation

The Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse has published rapid review of local commissioning looking at how child sexual abuse (CSA) and child sexual exploitation (CSE) services were commissioned in five local areas in England. Findings from a review of the literature and interviews with 30 commissioners include: CSE service commissioning practice appears well-developed, but there is a need to invest in CSA and harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) commissioning practice and service provision; concern among stakeholders about increasing demand for CSA, CSE and HSB services, including service response to the online facilitation of these abuses.
