Listening to and involving children and young people in the development of the services they receive is not an ‘add-on’, but is at the heart of what Lancashire does. Although work with victims and perpetrators of child sexual exploitation poses challenges, the views of children and young people who have experienced abuse are being effectively used to influence policy, procedure and practice across Lancashire. The Street Safe Lancashire programme is at the forefront of this work, which is being supported by the Lancashire Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) Child Sexual Exploitation sub group and Standing Operating Protocol and Strategy. This good practice example outlines the reasons for developing the programme and the difference it has made to made to the way services are delivered to children in the county.
