Gwent Safeguarding Board
The Gwent Safeguarding Boards previously shared resources in July 2021 to support and progress work around the CSA National Action Plan, as a continuation of this work we are pleased to be sharing a new resource relating to Child Sexual Exploitation - A Guide for Parents and Carers.
The Welsh Government and Barnardo's Cymru have created a guide for parents and carers providing Care, Support and Protection to children at risk of or who have been harmed by CSE. The guide covers what CSE is and how to identify and report CSE, ways of preventing CSE and the impact and recovery.
