The Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board (SSSCB) has launched its Child Exploitation Strategy for preventing, identifying and tackling child exploitation.
It has been developed using the knowledge gained from local needs analysis in respect of child exploitation across both areas and has drawn upon national policy and guidance about effective practice.
The strategy encompasses three outcomes;
- Children and young people are not victims of Child Exploitation
- Children and young people are protected from Child Exploitation by parents / carers, communities, professionals and businesses
- Children, young people and adults are not perpetrators and / or groomed to facilitate Child Exploitation
