London Child House

Project start date: February 2020

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime And NHS England (London Region) were awarded up to £554,500 to contribute to our London Child House pilot. This will improve support for children and young people who have been sexually abused or exploited by bringing services together under one roof; a “child house”.

The service will provide support to children and young people who have been a victim of child sexual abuse and child sexual exploitation as well their non-offending families and carers.
