Basildon CSP - Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)

The Partnership has the appropriate representation and involvement in the comprehensive County Wide structure that is in place to address Child Sexual Exploitation.

The key areas of engagement for the CSP are as follows:

Missing and Child Exploitation Group (MACE) South Quadrant:

MACE meetings aim to identify young people, share information and support those identified as being at high risk of exploitation through their missing episodes, behaviour or other incidents.

The meeting is split into two parts:

  • the first to discuss specific individual cases, usually around 6-8 and identified by Children's Social Care;
  • the second to work with partners and CSPs to look at the CSE model, with focus on creating problem profiles, targeting venues/locations, identifying vulnerable populations whilst gathering information regarding links between suspected offenders and their movements across Essex and out of the county.

The development of a data set shared at these meetings informs decisions made by the group. The CSP representative at these meetings is Basildon Council's Community Safety Manager who also sits on the County-wide CSE & Missing Sub-Group and is influential in the development of the countywide response to CSE.

Stay Safe Group (SSG):

Each SSG is a sub-committee of the local Children's & Young People's Partnership Board, which consists of operational and strategic managers from statutory partner agencies, and focuses on local practice issues with a particular emphasis on local trends and performance.

The Stay Safe Groups are also formal Advisory Groups to the Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB) for the purpose of giving the board a stronger locality focus.  The work of the Stay Safe Groups aligns with the priorities within the ESCB Business Plan and brings much valued local feedback and perspectives from frontline staff.
