Safe Network offers a specialised clinical assessment and invention service for boys and girls aged 5-12 years who have problematic or concerning sexual behaviour.
While it is normal and healthy for children to engage in sexualised behaviours appropriate for their age, some behaviours may be age-inappropriate or make others feel uncomfortable, confused or hurt.Children's Services Fact Sheet
Safe Network offers a specialised clinical assessment and invention service for young people aged 13-17 years who display concerning and harmful sexual behaviour.
Sexual development is one of many areas of change for adolescents. Adolescents engage in and display a range of sexual behaviour that is healthy and normal for their age. But when it is harmful, action should be taken to address the factors that have caused that behaviour.
Stopping concerning and harmful sexual behaviour in adolescents may require specialist help that directly addresses their age-appropriate and developmental needs.Youth Services Fact Sheet
