The importance of multi-agency working to prevent sexual abuse By Kieran McCartan, PhD Yesterday I presented at an eventin London, which examined the role of multi-agency working in child protection across England. The event was framed around new changes being implemented in social work across England as part of the Putting children first agenda and the Children and Social Work Act, The day consisted of a series of talks, approximately 10 in total, which focused on how we can protect children better, how we can learn from good and bad practice, as well as how we can work better together to prevent sexual abuse.
In addition, presenters felt that there was a lot to be gained from the multi-agency working that went into serious case reviewschild safeguarding practice reviews and joint targeted area inspections.
The speakers from schools and with an education viewpoint argued that schools need the resources to deal with the safeguarding issues that they face on a daily basis, suggesting that when social workers and counselors are placed within schools then the establish can effectively respond and the experiences of everyone involved is improved.
Cassandra directed attendees to their research agenda, publications and ongoing collaborations for more information on their work. The IWF emphasized the importance of getting men, especially young men, to report child sexual abuse imagery posted on traditional pornography sites or on other forums where they would not expect to find it.
The only way that the prevention of sexual abuse was going to happen in practice was through a public and coordinated commitment to it. This promoted a lot of debate within the audience with some participants suggesting that that these types of material should not be used as they are harmful referencing the work of Jessica Eaton or that they should only be used in a certain way, with certain groups with appropriate resources i.
Which was seen as salient in the way that we talked about perpetrators, the use of terminology i. The question was raised, whose responsibility was it to streamline and prioritize this new information so that it could be used effectively.
The event and the presentations across the day really highlighted the importance of working together to prevent as well as respond to child sexual abuse. One of the final statements made by the chair was that change had to come from communities and that if communities saw organizations working effectively together it would enforce that something was being done to tackle child sexual abuse and that they should have trust in, as well as participate with, the system.Please Note: Working Together to Safeguard Children – Following publication in July of the revised statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children (), the Derby and Derbyshire.
