Trilateral Research’s Client Relationship Lead, Gavin Day and Head of Programme Against Exploitation and Violence Dr Julia Muraszkiewicz, showcased Trilateral’s flagship child safeguarding solution, CESIUM, at a leading safeguarding event on Thursday 28 March 2024. Speaking at ‘Safeguarding Children: Promoting welfare – protecting from harm’, Trilateral demonstrated the real-world capabilities to representatives from across safeguarding partnerships around the UK. 

The event, attended by safeguarding experts including Kenny Gibson, the National Head of Safeguarding for NHS England who stated “connecting intelligence can save lives”; a key feature of the CESIUM platform. The event provided an opportunity to inform and induce best practice, exchange ideas and build networks across safeguarding partnerships. CESIUM, currently being implemented across Lincolnshire Police, is now being used as an example of best practice in the use of AI in safeguarding partnerships, with significant improvements in both internal efficiencies and early identification if at-risk children recorded. 

Speaking on the importance of CESIUM being used in safeguarding, Gavin Day commented, 

A report published last week into Child Criminal Exploitation by Professor Alexis Jay highlights that the current safeguarding system is not working; we know something has to change. Prof Jay calls for a ‘new approach’ to end this crisis, and explains that the lack of data on exploitation makes it more difficult to identify, prevent and respond to exploitation. CESIUM is that new approach. For CESIUM, innovation is key; it gives you the opportunity to merge all your data sets. It provides proactive, explainable insights into vulnerability, taking data sharing to the next level, locally, regionally and nationally. It vastly enhances current safeguarding capabilities, using ethically designed AI. 

 

 

On the opportunities presented by CESIUM for the wider safeguarding networks, Dr Muraszkiewicz commented, 

Everyone in attendance agreed that understanding and sharing data is vital if we are going to change and improve our approach to safeguarding vulnerable children from exploitation. There was clear interest in the capabilities of CESIUM to do this, just now and in the future as CESIUM’s capabilities and opportunities continue to grow.
