Evaluation of Barnardo's Families and Communities Against Child Sexual Exploitation programme

Author : Barnardo's (funded by DfE) independent evaluation by the University of Bedfordshire's International Centre (March 2015)

Price : Free

The two year FCASE programme has been based in existing Barnardo's specialist CSE services in three locations across England.

The aim of the FCASE project was to:

  1. equip parents and carers with the knowledge and skills to help them better protect children at risk of CSE.
  2. raise awareness of CSE within communities.
  3. train professionals such as social workers and police officers to be able to spot the signs of CSE.

The evaluation found that direct work with parents and carers, as well as with children at risk of sexual exploitation, can reduce the risk of harm to a child and improve relationships at home. Community outreach and engagement is vital when raising awareness, so that the information provided and approach used by those preventing and tackling child sexual exploitation (CSE) reflects the communities they serve.

The literature reviews, interim report, and case study report will be available from early May.

Online learning resources will also be available in due course.
