Consultation on the draft Sexual Exploitation Strategy 2020 - 2025

South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership and its partners have refreshed the Sexual Exploitation Strategy and want to hear your views. The Sexual Exploitation Joint Action Group is a sub-group of the South Ayrshire Violence Against Women Partnership and has worked on refreshing the Sexual Exploitation Strategy to raise awareness and to improve the response to sexual exploitation.

In line with the National Action Plan to Prevent and Tackle Child Sexual Exploitation Update, the Sexual Exploitation Joint Action Group has agreed that this strategy is working towards the same strategic priorities and also including vulnerable adults:

  1. The risk that children, young people and vulnerable adults are exploited is reduced through a focus on prevention and early identification.
  2. Children, young people and vulnerable adults at risk of or experiencing sexual exploitation and their families receive appropriate and high quality support.
  3. Perpetrators are stopped, brought to justice and less likely to re-offend.
  4. Cultural and social barriers to preventing and tackling sexual exploitation are reduced.

We want to hear your views on the Strategy. The consultation is open till Friday 24th January 2020. If you could spare 5 minutes to complete a short survey, it would be really helpful to inform the strategy going forward. Please click here to complete the online survey:
