New Toolkit to support Practitioners who work with adults at risk of, or who are experiencing sexual exploitation.
Both locally and nationally it has been recognised there is a requirement for the development of processes and formal guidance in relation to the response to incidents of Adult Sexual Exploitation (ASE).
The Teeswide Safeguarding Adults Board (TSAB) has developed a Toolkit, which includes a risk screening tool and referral pathway. It is intended to support partners and colleagues to recognise the signs of ASE, assess the associated risk factors and vulnerabilities, then take appropriate, proportionate steps to safeguard and support.
The new Toolkit will be launched during National Safeguarding Adults Week on Thursday 23 November, where the focus for the day will be trauma informed practice.
From 23 November, professionals can access the Toolkit and supporting documents via the TSAB website - https://www.tsab.org.uk/key-information/policies-strategies/
