National Sibling Sexual Abuse Conference 2022 – post-conference information and resources

The National Sibling Sexual Abuse Conference for frontline sectors, held in February 2022, was the first national conference on sibling sexual abuse in the U.K. It was organised by the SARSAS and the RCEW National Project on Sibling Sexual Abuse (2020-2022).

This web-based post-conference information pack has been designed to build on the conference sessions and increase professional confidence around and knowledge of sibling sexual abuse. It includes national best practice, guidance and advice on working with children, young people, families and adults affected by sibling sexual abuse. Reports written by RCEW National Project on Sibling Sexual Abuse and information submitted by conference attendees has also been collated and included.

The pack contains six recorded sessions from the conference and training and information all of which can be accessed on the Centre’s YouTube channel
