Measuring the scale and changing nature of child sexual abuse and child sexual exploitation Scoping report

A key aim of the Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse is to increase understanding and awareness of the scale and nature of child sexual abuse (CSA). This paper forms the background to reaching current best estimates for both CSA and child sexual exploitation (CSE), as part of a strand of work which seeks to improve measurement and identify gaps in knowledge.

The aims for this piece of work were to:

Living in fear - the police and CPS response to harassment and stalking

Harassment and stalking crimes are damaging and pervade all sections of society. They can devastate lives and in some cases they end in death. In a digital world, they are crimes that can take place all too easily and frequently.

It is therefore hard to see how Government can be achieving value for money in its efforts to improve the mental health and well being of prisoners, according to the report by the National Audit Office.
