ChildLinK is pleased to share with you the “Caring for boys affected by sexual Violence” report. The study was conducted by  Family for Every Child which is a global alliance of civil society organizations working together to improve the lives of vulnerable children around the world.  This initial scoping study into sexual violence affecting boys sought to understand the existing knowledge base on the drivers of sexual violence affecting boys, and the existing intervention practice in this area. It is the first stage of a wider project, and designed to inform the future planned work of Family for Every Child member organisations; to understand how social norms around gender influence how we care for boys affected by sexual violence; and to identify what is being done by like-minded organisations to ensure that boys affected by sexual violence recover fully and grow up in a permanent, safe and caring family or quality alternative care, where needed.
