Improving Responses to the Sexual Abuse of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Children – England & Wales

The Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse commissioned the Race Equality Foundation (REF) to explore the perspectives of professionals working with children from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds who have experienced child sexual abuse. 

The report, now published, recommends overcoming barriers by increasing diversity in the workforce, addressing racism and unconscious bias, developing cultural competency, establishing services within communities and building trust, raising awareness of CSA within communities, and challenging ideas that prevent disclosure and encourage victim blaming.
