Child Exploitation and Extra-Familial Harm Practice Principles

We're proud to have been involved in the development of the multi-agency Practice Principles for responding to child exploitation and extra-familial harm produced by the Tackling Child Exploitation (TCE) Support Programme.

The practice principles consider the views of children, young people, parents, carers and professionals and learnings from research to promote a holistic response to child exploitation and extra-familial harm. A consistent and effective framework is needed to keep young women and girls safe.

Utilising ALL principles will support effective partnership working & better responses for young people - but which practice principle do you think is the most important in your work? We love to see an emphasis on valuing the expertise of young people!

The centre says "Responses to child exploitation and extra-familial harm must..." and the points say: "-Put children and young people first -Recognise and challenge inequalities, exclusion and discrimination -Response the voice, experience and expertise of children and young people -Be strengths and relationship-based -Recognise and respond to trauma -Be curious, evidence-informed and knowledgeable -Approach parents and carers as partners, wherever possible -Create safe spaces and places for children and young people"
