Tackling Child Exploitation
The Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme aims to support local areas to develop an effective strategic response to child exploitation and risk of harm from outside the family home – ‘extra-familial harm’. This covers child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation, including county lines drug trafficking and modern slavery.
To reflect this we have structured this site in a way that we hope will contribute to a cross-cutting understanding of child exploitation and extra-familial harm; one which encourages all of us to approach strategic change from multiple vantage points.
We believe that the evidence and tools that will help you best tackle child exploitation and extra-familial harm do not fall neatly into categories of ‘types’ of abuse, nor do they correspond exclusively to particular professional backgrounds, or to one agency over another.
This is not a definitive body of evidence; rather it is a representative sample of the evidence we have in an emerging field. As the programme grows so too will the body of resources we have to share. This site is not a static resource, but one that we will constantly amend and adapt to reflect our collective insights and understanding as users of the site identify, share and contribute new sources of evidence.
