NWG Network Evaluation
The NWG Network is a charitable organisation formed as a UK network of over 473 organisations and more than 2,700 points of contact to disseminate information on the issue of child sexual exploitation (CSE) and trafficking within the UK. Their Network covers voluntary, statutory and private services. It offers support and advice, raises the profile of important issues, provides updates, shares national developments and influences the development of national and local policy informed by practice.
In October 2013 OPM was asked by NWG Network to carry out a small scale independent evaluation of their work. We were also asked to focus on the impact of the programme funded by Department for Education (DfE): develop and reform safeguarding services that protect and support children at risk of harm.
