The Northern Trust and the Police Service of Northern Ireland have held a multi-agency workshop on Child Sexual Exploitation.

The aim of the workshop which brought together over 140 representatives from social services, police, health, education and voluntary sectors, was to ensure that professionals respond sensitively and effectively to the needs of children/ young people who are victims or at risk of CSE and to improve interagency working. John Fenton, Assistant Director for Safeguarding and Family Support Services said: “The workshop was an important opportunity for social workers, police officers and other key professionals in the NHSCT area to share examples of good practice in this work and to strengthen working relationships in order to better work with young people and their families.”
