Abstract

This study focused on the knowledge of front line staff, as individuals and in groups, in relation to the sexual abuse of adults with learning disabilities and was designed to inform staff training and policy initiatives and to explore gender dynamics. It showed that front line staff were alert to the possibility of sexual abuse but unclear about their roles and responsibilities making this an area of great concern to them. One third knew of people who had been abused but these had been dealt with haphazardly, leaving front line staff holding disproportionate anxiety on behalf of the service as a whole.
