Spotting the Signs is a CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation) risk assessment tool jointly developed by BASHH and Brook for sexual health professionals in 2014. Funding from the DHSC has been secured to bring the tool up to date with current developments in CSE, CCE (Child Criminal Exploitation), safeguarding, online risks and digital consultations.
Getting the views of sexual health professionals is key to the success of the review; so we would like to ask you to spare 5-10 minutes to complete the survey and share it with your colleagues. Please click here to access the survey.
The consultation analysis report is now available here.
