In this seminar Children 1st chief executive Anne Houston and CRFR research associate Sarah Nelson  will discuss the implications of the Savile revelations for future protection of children and young people from sexual abuse, and on ways of promoting a more supportive atmosphere for adults to report historic abuse.

Anne Houston and Sarah Nelson have both been prominent in media comment on the recent stream of historic abuse revelations relating to Jimmy Savile and other alleged perpetrators. They have also been publicly outspoken, along with other prominent child protection specialists, in expressing “grave concern” at an apparent decline in priority for child sexual abuse in Scottish local authority social work.

This seminar will be of interest to academics and practitioners working with children and families – in research, in social work, social policy, family policy and other fields.
