Password to register: Spring2021

CESIUM supports the fight against child exploitation in a number of ways; it can search systems and present professionals with information that they hold but is often hidden or scattered in a variety of places. CESIUM then presents this information in a meaningful way for the attention of professional’s and helps child safeguarding partnerships to work together to safeguard children and respond to the direction of policy in this area.

CESIUM does not make decisions for professionals, it ensures that they have the right information, in a timely fashion, in order to apply their own professional judgement and to determine what action needs to be taken to safeguard a child.

It can help determine potential victims or perpetrators of exploitation and assist in the identification of locations where exploitation is taking place.

Please see at this LINK a recent blog from the project manager which explains in more detail the creation and development of CESIUM.

A full agenda will be published nearer to the event which will include senior stakeholder guest speakers who will bring you up to date on the wider national agenda within child safeguarding as well as the use of data analytics and its relationship to CESIUMs approach.
