CSA Centre

Centre of Expertise

The Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse (CSA Centre) is a multi-disciplinary team, funded by the Home Office and hosted by Barnardo's - their aim is to reduce the impact of child sexual abuse through improved prevention and better response for young people and families. 


To tackle child sexual abuse we must understand its causes, scope, scale and impact. We know a lot about child sexual abuse and have made progress in dealing with it, but there are still many gaps in our knowledge and understanding which limit how effectively we are tackling the issue.

The CSA Centre has a wealth of free resources, blogs and reports to support professionals who are working with young people and families who have experienced child sexual abuse.

There is also training and consultancy packages, including a practice leads programme which allows organisations to sustain understanding and build confidence in identifying and responding to child sexual abuse in a trauma aware way.
