Research on CSE perpetrators

This is groundbreaking experimental research on perpetrators of child sexual exploitation in the North East of England funded by Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner and the National Lottery. The pilot project’s methodology was a success which opens the way for more detailed work across the region. Read a copy here. Also, here is a copy of the presentation given on the 27th March 2018 at Middlesbrough Football Ground for the Police and Crime Commissioner’s CSE perpetrator event.


"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre

"I am pleased with the honesty and thoroughness with which he (Christopher) dealt with the project. Thanks to the evaluation we now have a number of questions answered and a clear way forward."
