Harmful Sexual Behaviour Project

Recent NSPCC research and emerging data from the NSCP 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 Michelle Trollope (Clinical Lead) at hsbproject@norfolk.gov.uk

Some useful new web pages which have been recently launched by The Harmful Sexual Behaviour team. The team’s specialists in psychology and harmful sexual behaviour are skilled at all levels of intervention. The new webpages, which have sections for young people, parents and carers, and professionals, can be found here. These new pages aim to help the transition into more digital ways of working and provide a useful resource for professionals.
