Harmful Sexual Behaviour Project

26th September 2017

Recent NSPCC research and emerging data from the NSCB and Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary highlights the scale of Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB) in children and young people and the patchy, uncoordinated response to addressing it.

Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) and Norfolk Youth Offending Team (NYOT) have formed a partnership to deliver a Norfolk response to addressing HSB. The HSB project aims to create a skilled workforce, confident in assessing and intervening across all levels of HSB in children and young people.

The HSB project will be providing a range of training in relation to HSB from improving basic skills in recognising HSB to specialist bespoke training for professionals working with more complex cases.

Professionals will also be able to seek consultations in respect of any child under 18 living in Norfolk and Waveney where there are concerns or worries about HSB.

For further information or a case consultation, please contact Francesca Burgess, Richard Hinton (HSB Specialists) or Dr Romana Farooq (Specialist Clinical Psychologist) at hsbproject@norfolk.gcsx.gov.uk
