Multi-agency working is a core feature of the service response to child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Wales, however there is little research understanding of what this looks like in practice.

The aim of this project is to provide an in-depth understanding of how multi-agency practitioner groups in Wales understand, navigate, and contribute to the construction of newly-implemented and evolving key concepts related to CSE, including risk and outcomes, within the context of inter-agency interactions, service planning, and decision making.
