We are pleased to bring you an online learning session for civil servants in Wales, delivered by the  Child Sexual Abuse Centre (CSA). 

The CSA are working to build the confidence, knowledge and skills amongst frontline practitioners working with children, in order to best identify and respond to children’s needs. The CSA state that child sexual abuse in the UK remains alarmingly unreported, despite research showing that far more children are being sexually abused and harmed than are currently identified or safeguarded. We know that children rarely verbally disclose sexual abuse to professionals (particularly social workers and police officers); and often wait until adulthood before telling professionals. Sadly, some children are never able to tell anyone.

This is an excellent opportunity for civil servants to hear about the work of the CSA. The session will give you a greater awareness of the impact of child sexual abuse and the signs to look out for. The CSA are funded by the Home Office and you can find out more about who they are on their website
