Strengthening participatory practice with children and young people affected by sexual violence
Our Voices is a programme of work coordinated by the International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation, Violence and Trafficking at the University of Bedfordshire.
Our Voices promotes the involvement of children and young people affected by sexual violence in research, policy and practice.
Dr Isabelle Brodie (International Centre) shares findings from a scoping review of the literature she conducted with colleagues from the International Centre on the participation of young people in child sexual exploitation (CSE) services. The review was part of the Alexi Project and can be accessed here. Isabelle speaks about the different meanings of participation, what conditions need to be in place in order to make participative working possible and effective, and shares young people and professionals' views on participation in CSE services; what they value and what they find challenging.
