This report discusses the results collected during the first Knowledge Transfer Workshop (KTW) held in Bristol in January 2024.

 

CONTEXT

 

The first 2PS (Prevent & protect through support) Knowledge Transfer Workshop (KTW) was held with stakeholders on 22nd January 2024 at UWE in Bristol bringing together professionals, practitioners, academics, and policymakers from across Europe who work to prevent child sexual abuse. The KTW was the first of three that are spread across the three years of this Horizon Europe funded project and are the core dissemination and engagement activity for the project. As part of the 2PS project work package 2 (WP2) the KTW aims to create links with appropriate stakeholders and develop a stakeholder community consisting of experts and first-line responders to engage in knowledge exchange, raise awareness of prevention initiatives, and discuss best practices.

The first workshop was focused around two key topics.

  • Current effectiveness of national and local policies and main findings from initial searches; and
  • Determining the success and efficacy of existing risk assessment tools, treatment and support programs based on their experience and knowledge.

As a result, the themes that emerged from the workshops crossed and interwove through the discussions and produced 3 main overarching themes:

 

  1. Consistent communication and shared values
  2. Research and Funding
  3. Service ethics: assessing risk and reporting
