An Evaluation of how Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland member agencies are effectively responding to and managing Child Sexual Exploitation within Northern Ireland

In 2018 the SBNI commissioned Leonard Consultancy to examine both at a strategic and operational level how the member agencies of the SBNI are effectively addressing CSE from prevention to intervention within Northern Ireland.

This exercise followed on from the Pinkerton Review in 2015 wherein a further evaluation was recommended.

SBNI member agencies were keen to have a collective overview of all agencies responsiveness to CSE and commissioned the overview evaluation from Leonard Consultancy. The Evaluation was conducted in 2019, the report presented to the SBNI Board in February 2020 and is available here.

The SBNI CSE Sub Group is overseeing the implementation to the Recommendations of the Evaluation Report.
