Research on innovation in services for young people exposed to complex risk



27th May 2020

The Innovate Project, led by Professor Michelle Lefevre at the University of Sussex, has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council to research how innovation is currently transforming services for young people facing complex extra-familial risks such as child sexual exploitation, criminal exploitation, peer-on-peer abuse, and gang involvement.

As part of this work, they are asking senior professionals within local authorities and organisations who are involved in the strategic planning of services for young people to complete our survey and share the new practice and systems they are developing.

They are particularly interested in hearing from those of you who have been thinking about introducing, have started to develop, or who have implemented Trauma-Informed Practice, Contextual Safeguarding or Transitional Safeguarding approaches.

They are also keen to hear about how are transforming practice in response to Covid-19. 

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, is entirely voluntary and your responses are confidential. The survey is available here.

If you would like to know more about the project please follow the Innovate Project on Twitter @innovateproj and/or email T.L.McCann@sussex.ac.uk to join the mailing list.
