Child Exploitation Disruption Toolkit
May 24, 2019
The Home Office’s Child Exploitation Disruption Toolkit outlines useful tools that the police and other safeguarding professionals can use to disrupt the sexual and criminal exploitation of children and young people, break the cycle of abuse and send a signal to perpetrators about the consequences of their actions.
The toolkit is primarily aimed at frontline staff, including law enforcement, social care, education, housing and the voluntary sector, working to safeguard children and young people under the age of 18 from sexual and criminal exploitation. It includes best practice in information sharing and multi-agency working as well as intelligence and evidence gathering.
The toolkit looks specifically at:
· abduction and trafficking
· sexual offences
· victim care
· unusual or harmful behaviour
· locations of specific concern
