The National Crime Agency report and the Children’s Commissioner recognise that the true scale of children and young people being abused and exploited is difficult to determine and remains a clear intelligence gap. We do not know the real number of those affected and a large number of young people remain hidden without any support.
The Children’s Commissioner for England in 2018 warned that up to 30,000 to 50,000 young people could be affected in Britain by county lines only, without taking into account other types of children exploitation.
CESIUM will empower STRIAD®, Trilateral’s cloud-based data-driven risk assessment platform, with disruptive algorithms built via a co-design approach and privacy-by-design and data ethics best practice.
To ensure that CESIUM is effective and fit-for-purpose, Trilateral Research has engaged across the safeguarding network throughout the UK. Activities in CESIUM are being shared with the data analytics workstream of the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) so as to complement their current approach.
