Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation
This revised Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) framework and strategy has been developed by Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) following the publication of the Jay Report into CSE in Rotherham. The strategy takes into account the context we are now operating in, incorporating good practice nationally and locally in implementing the West Midlands Metropolitan Area Child Sexual Exploitation Framework. In Birmingham the multi-agency response is delivered through the CSE & Missing Sub-Group, which is responsible for the implementation of the Citywide Strategy.

See Me, Hear Me Campaign - http://www.seeme-hearme.org.uk/
The See Me Here Me Campaign was launched in June 2014, by Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Coventry, Birmingham and Solihull Councils along with West Midlands Police and other partners, to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation.
The Campaign follows the development of the See Me Hear Me framework, which sets out how agencies across the West Midlands work together to prevent, respond to and support victims.
The framework was developed by the seven councils, West Midlands Police and partner organisations, including Barnardos and PACE and is based on recommendations from the Office of the Children's Commissioner.
