Useful Research

As research into child sexual abuse grows, so does the availability of useful information, data and insight. This can come from sources like recent reports published by the Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

The findings of publications like these are not just useful for anyone helping survivors directly; they can also help guide commissioners in their decisions about service provision.  Here, we have created links to key organisations and publications, and we will update this page when new material is made available.

I wanted to say how great I think the work is and what fantastic progress is being made.  I do read the papers and use them in discussions with partners and commissioners – just wanted you to know that.
