Although this is a hard and difficult topic to talk about we feel that it is vital to raise awareness for some of the signs and issues that we can all look out for and be aware of relating to child exploitation.
On the 18th March Thames Valley Police ‘True Costs’ campaign will share the 4th video clip from their series ‘Dee’s Story’, a serving prisoner who talks about child exploitation along county lines. These are things that are being spoken about more frequently and support resources and organisations are being shared.
STOP CSE have also shared their ‘Safe to Play’ Campaign that looks at exploitation within the sports sphere. You can take a look at resources and videos here – they also have an app ‘ZAPPAR’ where you can use augmented reality to hear and see from the perspective of a parent, coach and child.
If you would like more information about the resources available please get in touch.
