Child Sexual Abuse
The increased focus on safeguarding the vulnerable has led to greater public awareness of this form of abuse, and growing confidence amongst its victims and survivors to come forward to seek support and report crimes. The opening of the new Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), offers a comprehensive service for anyone who has experienced sexual violence or abuse, and has enhanced the support available for all victims. I will work with the police and other partners to ensure that increasing awareness and prevention of CSA/E are key areas of focus; that CSA/E victims remain protected; and that offenders are dealt with through an efficient criminal justice system.
Child Sexual Abuse Priority Plan
So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.
These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.
We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
If you have a positive contribution to make to our Priority Plans please contact the office.
