Contextual Safeguarding Network

'The International Centre: Researching child sexual exploitation, violence and trafficking' launched the Contextual Safeguarding Network in September 2016. The Contextual Safeguarding Network brings together practitioners across the United Kingdom to share and generate knowledge on contextual approaches to safeguarding young people from violence and abuse.

The network promotes theory-informed practice and seeks to develop practice-informed research co-created with academics and practitioners. We seek to accelerate the learning from, piloting of, and contextual approaches to safeguarding by disseminating research findings and running in-person and online trainings and events.

Members are encouraged to submit ideas for training or materials so that the Research Team can respond to the identified needs of practitioners. Membership to the Contextual Safeguarding Network is free.
