Sexual Behaviours Traffic Light Tool


Audience: healthcare professionals

By identifying sexual behaviours as GREENAMBER or RED, professionals across different agencies can work to the same criteria when making decisions and protect children and young people with a unified approach.

This tool lists examples of presenting sexual behaviours within four age categories. All green, amber and red behaviours require some form of attention and response, but the type of intervention will vary according to the behaviour. This tool must be used within the context of the guidance provided and should not be used in isolation.
