Young Person Consultation


Between December 2013 – September 2014 we consulted with approximately 65 young people affected by CSE. We ran a number of focus groups as well surveys that young people could complete with workers and send to us. 


We asked young people:
  • If a national awareness campaign was needed? 
  • If so, what could it look like? 
  • If so, what would be the best way to raise awareness? 
What did young people tell us?
  • that a national campaign was needed
  • that schools were key to it working
  • that there was a need for a variety of options for young people to speak out as some young people felt they had no options
  • plus they gave us lots of information about what a campaign could look like
From October 2014 - present 
We have had a group of 5-14 young people working on developing the #SaySomething campaign, which launched on the 29th of June 2015 at Westminster. The purpose of the campaign is to help young people identify the signs of a healthy/unhealthy relationship. A number of resources have been created to help as the campaign is rolled out nationally including posters, roller banners for schools, wristbands and credit card style leaflets for young people.
