This report provides an overview of an evaluation of the NSPCC’s Safe Home programme carried out by the Public Health Institute at Liverpool John Moores University.
Safe Home is a programme of support for parents and carers of children who have displayed harmful sexual behaviour (HSB). It sits alongside therapeutic support offered to children and young people who have displayed HSB.
The evaluation was commissioned to explore the experiences of practitioners, parents and carers involved in the Safe Home programme. The methodology included an online survey with 27 Safe Home practitioners and team managers, 10 semi-structured interviews with practitioners, 15 in-depth interviews with parents and carers, and an analysis of NSPCC case management system data.
This report summarises the key findings from the evaluation.
