A Risk of Sexual Harm Order (RoSHO) is a civil preventative order created by the Protection of Children and Prevention of Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2005. The aim of a RoSHO is to prevent sexual harm to either a specific child (under 16 years) or children in general (under 16 years) from aspects of an individual’s behaviour. In this Info Sheet, Donna McEwan provides an overview of the RoSHO, including who it’s for and what the implications are.
