all places and spaces should be safe for young people

Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme

The aim of the Tackling Child Exploitation Support Programme is to develop an effective strategic response to child exploitation and extra-familial harm.
It is a significant investment by the Department for Education with the project goals of bridging the gaps between research, practice and people's lived experiences to improve practice and, ultimately, outcomes for children and families.

As local areas strive to keep children and young people safe, the Tackling Child Exploitation Support Programme aims to offer senior colleagues tools and support to think critically and creatively about the emerging challenges they are facing. We can offer support both through the resources on this site and through Bespoke Support Projects , which offer time-limited tailored local support on priorities identified by local partnerships.

The Tackling Child Exploitation Support Programme also has a key role to play in identifying emerging trends in  child exploitation and extra-familial harm as they arise and sharing with the Department for Education and the sector more widely new risks and influences that may affect children and young people’s safety.
