Regional Paediatric Referral Pathway for acute CSA concerns – The Bridge SARC
This document outlines the Bristol pathway for referring a child / young adult who has disclosed sexual assault.
Harmful Sexual Behaviour
Children and young people who abuse others should be held responsible for their abusive behaviour, whilst being identified and responded to in a way that meets their needs as well as protecting others. They are likely to be children in need and some will, in addition, be suffering – or be at risk of – significant harm, and may themselves be in need of protection. This protocol provides guidance to professionals on how to work with and address children who display Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB).
