Contextual safeguarding is an approach to understanding and responding to, young people’s experiences of significant harm beyond their families. 

Therefore contextual safeguarding expands the objectives of child protection systems 

  • Recognise that extra- familial risks such as sexual and criminal exploitation are forms of abuse requiring safeguarding response
  • Identify interventions and focus on addressing wider environmental factors
  • Discuss the contextual risks faced by young people who have instigated or perpetrated harm as well as those who they have abused
  • Take part in case studies to identify contextual safeguarding and to be able to complete the risk assessment form.
