Transitional safeguarding - adolescence to adulthood: Strategic Briefing (2018)
In recent years, safeguarding children and adults has become increasingly complex. Sector leaders in social care note that sexual exploitation, gangs and violent crime - including domestic violence and abuse, modern slavery and trafficking - are challenging the children’s and adults’ workforce to reflect on established models of safeguarding and identify opportunities for innovation.
Safeguarding is a field where binary notions of childhood and adulthood have prevailed; as such the notion of ‘transitional safeguarding’ is an emerging one, not currently widely applied in policy or practice.
