The 2017-19 CSE Strategy builds on the work already in place across Sandwell as risks to children of sexual exploitation have been recognised for a number of years.
The strategy emphasises the importance of a strong partnership across all agencies responsible for safeguarding children. Organisations such as West Midlands Police, health services and the local authority cannot work in isolation when seeking to combat child sexual exploitation and protect children and young people in Sandwell. It is only through working together that we will be successful in our work in this complex area
