The AoCPP’s Child Sexual Abuse Special Interest Group

'The Impact of Pornography on the Sexual Behaviour of Children and Young People'

11 May 2023, 12.00pm - 1.30pm

Speakers: Louise Barraclough, Lead Nurse for Devon & Cornwall Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARC) and Dr Lizzie Jones, Senior Social Researcher within the Children's Commissioner for England's Reseach Team.

This session provides an overview of the Children’s Commissioner for England’s recent in-depth report into the prevalence of pornography exposure (both intentional and unintentional) among young people in England, and its impacts on children’s safety and wellbeing. The report presents findings from a nationally representative survey of over 1,000 young people aged 16-21, conducted in late 2022 as well as the voices of young people we spoke to through focus groups.
