Sexual Exploitation and Harm Panel (SEHP)
The Sexual Exploitation and Harm Panel (SEHP) is a multi-agency forum discussing individuals at high risk of serious harm or death as a result of involvement in sex work/prostitution and/or sexual exploitation.
It aims to:
- address the safety and support needs of individuals discussed,
- identify trends in support provision and gaps in interventions, and
- hold perpetrators to account.
The panel consists of statutory and voluntary agencies such as police, probation, health services (including the NHS Health Inclusion team and SLaM), housing, the Gaia Centre, Spires, St Mungo’s, the Beth Centre, Thames Reach, Lorraine Hewitt House and others.
These agencies meet monthly to share key information on those referred and agree an action plan to address the risks and support needs identified. This may include practical and emotional support for the victim/survivor, as well as enforcement tactics and criminal justice response to disrupt the perpetrators’ actions.
