The NSPCC, in partnership with NHS England, has produced resources to help those in the health sector recognise and respond to harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) in children and young people. The resources include: guidance for frontline practitioners on how to assess whether a child’s sexualised behaviour is harmful and what action should be taken; an updated version of the HSB framework which helps local areas evaluate and improve their response to HSB; guidance for strategic leads in the health sector on using the HSB framework; and a statistics briefing on HSB. Although the resources are aimed at the health sector they may also be useful for those working in other sectors.
