  3. To understand key findings from years one and two of our action research project to manage HSB in schools

About the webinar

At Lucy Faithfull Foundation we believe that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable. Alongside our specialist assessment, intervention and consultancy services, we also provide a number of prevention and early intervention initiatives for children and young people.

By the end of this workshop you will have learnt about the content of our Inform Young People programme: a tailored psycho-educative programme for young people who have got into trouble online. You will also have an opportunity to explore our innovative Shore website, designed with young people for young people.

Finally, you will hear from our schools project lead who will outline project aims and design before sharing key findings from the first two years of a three-year action research project exploring what works to respond to and prevent HSB in schools. Highlighting emerging issues and promising practice, we will share our growing evidence base.
