The CSA Centre has published a report on child sexual abuse in England and Wales. The report analyses existing data from children’s social care, policing, criminal justice and health to explore how child sexual abuse is being identified and responded to. Findings show: across the year, local authority children’s services in England recorded concerns about child sexual abuse in 33,760 assessments of children; concerns about child sexual exploitation were recorded in 15,020 assessments; and one in 10 assessments undertaken by local authorities in England recorded a concern about some form of child sexual abuse.
