A consortium, led by Research in Practice, together with The Children’s Society and University of Bedfordshire, has been appointed to develop and deliver a new programme to tackle child exploitation.
The Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme is a significant investment by the Department for Education and aims to support local areas to develop an effective strategic response to child exploitation and threats from outside the family home, including child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation, such as county lines drug trafficking.
The not-for-profit consortium is to work with a number of Delivery Partners, comprising local authorities, charities, academics and independent subject matter experts, to deliver support to local areas.
Worth keeping an eye on developments.
