Lincolnshire Branch - Promising approaches to address the criminal and sexual exploitation of young people

BASW 80-20 Campaign Event Series, sponsored by the Centre for Social Work Practice

The BASW England Lincolnshire Branch are proud to present their contribution to the 80-20 Campaign series of events, sponsored by the Centre for Social Work Practice.

Sexual and criminal exploitation have emerged in recent years as a significant area of risk for young people and have challenged our conventional safeguarding systems and approaches. This session will consider some of the latest research on the dynamics of child exploitation, and explore some of the approaches which offer promise for helping young people and their families.

  • Speaker - Professor Michelle Lefevre, University of Sussex

About the 80-20 Campaign

We are campaigning to reverse the current trend which sees children and families social workers spending just 20 per cent of their time in direct contact with families. Our survey has revealed that BASW England members feel more of their time should be spent building relationships with families and with less of their time on administrative and process driven activities.

About the Centre for Social Work Practice
