Blog: Sexual exploitation of children

BASW member Janet Foulds has written a Guardian blog Child grooming – what social workers should know.

Janet comments:

“Most offenders I have known are white, heterosexual men. We need to learn much more about how offenders organise themselves. We also need to continue to highlight the need for services for these children. We need preventive work, good training for professionals and access to support services to help children to deal with their experiences. To ignore or diminish the traumatic sexualisation of children is to store up many problems for them, other children and for mental health services in the future”.
