The Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse has published a report looking at messages from research on institutional child sexual abuse. The report looks at the extent, dynamics and impact of institutional abuse and discusses ways of preventing institutional abuse including: a rigorous recruitment and selection processes; an open organisational culture where safeguarding is seen as everyone’s business; and organisational processes in place, such as co-working, supervision and whistleblowing procedures, to minimise the opportunities for abuse to occur.
