Child Sexual Abuse: Basic Awareness 
7 December 9.30-11.30am – book here
There are many barriers to children disclosing sexual abuse for complex reasons. This short workshop will provide you with an overview of signs and behaviours that children may show us when they are unable to tell. We will then explore some of the things professionals can do to provide children who have been abused with the best opportunity to tell and importantly equip you with guidance on what to do next.


This session is presented as part of the Learning Together to Safeguard the City Week where Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) and the Safe in The City Partnership Board come together to raise awareness of safeguarding issues and promote how we can best work together to protect, and improve outcomes for, the most vulnerable in our society.

The aim of this week is to reveal and debate some of the most important issues in our city which affect individuals, their families and the wider community, as well as exploring the responsibilities of professionals in their everyday work and their contribution in keeping people safe and well.

All sessions can be booked through the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway:
