Action for Children

Location: UK National

We have delivered therapeutic post-sexual abuse services for children/young people for 25 years. Over this time our contract in Kent to provide emotional wellbeing services of this nature has changed from a pilot service supporting all young people requiring therapeutic intervention in Swale, expanding throughout south and east Kent, to now countywide provision. The Harbour Project (described above) was set up in October 2014 and whilst it is time-limited to 10 sessions we have experience of longer-term therapeutic support, and are currently piloting a 30 session model for one service user. Feedback from a parent: “the lady providing our care was very nice and attentive to mine and my child’s needs. She has helped us immensely through a very hard and troubling time.”

Remit area: Action for Children is one of the largest charitable providers of children’s services nationwide with 5,000 staff, 2,000 volunteers supporting more than 300,000 children, young people, parents and carers across 400 services in England, 74 in Scotland, 100 in Wales and 26 in Northern Ireland. We also have a strong track record of quality provision and positive presence in Staffordshire and are the key providers of short breaks and shared care across the county.

The intervention service is delivered across Cornwall.We also offer direct work with parents/carers using a “strengths” based approach where work is completed alongside the parent while a separate worker works with the Child or Young Person but both cover similar material simultaneously.

Clear & Secure aims to reduce the risk of future exploitation and young people going missing /absconding by delivering interventions supporting recognition and recovery work around experiences of sexual exploitation; plus we provide practical support and advocacy. We also provide bespoke CSE training to schools, local authority and young people services and a range of VCS organisations.

ROSE Project- Reaching Out on Sexual Exploitation

Location: East of England

ROSE is part of the Magdalene Group and includes a campaign to highlight the issue of CSE in Norfolk to professionals but also the general public. The project side of things include: Befriending- We receive referrals from our Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) in Norfolk to work 1:1 with young people at risk of or who have been sexually exploited to be a listening ear to them and to help them through their situation. We aim to work with the young person in an informal setting to help them think about keeping safe and be able to identify exploitative relationships and improve their life chances. Return to Home visits- We conduct return to home visits with young people who have run away or gone missing from home or care to ensure the young person’s well-being and to help them keep safe.

There is an element to see if there are concerns regarding CSE and if so we can refer the young person to one of our other services such as befriending. For other issues that are identified then we feed these back to our MASH so the relevant action can be taken. We are part of the MASH and attend daily briefings to receive referrals for return to home visits working with the Police Missing Person’s Co-ordinator. Youth Work- We provide a youth group and other youth work programmes to young people at risk and help to keep them safe from exploitative relationships but also to help give them better life chances. Street Outreach- We are currently developing a street outreach project where we will target known hotspots and potentially vulnerable young people and help to keep them safe from exploitative situations. Telephone Helpline and Live Chat- A service being developed -a telephone helpline and live chat service for young people who might be getting caught up in online risky behaviour and to women who are working in sex work online.

Kay Glover (Chief Executive Officer) kay.glover@savana.org.uk Caroline Byrne (Office Manager) caroline.byrne@savana.org.uk Emma Ward (Services Manager) emma.ward@savana.org.uk Savana was founded in 1986 and was known as the North Staffordshire Rape Crisis service, supporting women and girls affected by rape and sexual violence It was recognised that there was a need to support male survivors of sexual violence and, in 2011, the organisation began to support men and boys. The demand for training, from professionals in the community, has seen a notable rise and Savana offers a number of CPD accredited training courses by qualified trainers.

Over the past 30 years, the demand for the service has increased considerably and, in 2015, Savana relocated to larger premises to accommodate further service growth. Savana set up a charity shop in 2016 in order to reach out to other diverse areas of the community and support the organisation in becoming more self sufficient.

SCARPA Prevention & Action

Location: North East

Running away or going missing can be a key indicator of child sexual exploitation.

Remit area: Our targeted support is available to children and young people involved in going missing or at risk of sexual exploitation. We carry out “return home interviews” with children and young people who go missing across the North East. The interview is an in-depth conversation with the child or young person. It provides an opportunity to hear about why they went missing and to understand the risks and issues faced while they were missing. Interviews can uncover information to help protect children from the risk of going missing again, from risks they may have been exposed to while missing or from risk factors in their home. This work is in partnership with children’s social care, Local Children’s Safeguarding Boards; Missing Sexually Exploited & Trafficked groups and Northumbria Police. Our advice is available to all professionals or adults that come into contact with children and young people at risk and Referrals can be made by professionals, parents or by children and young people themselves. Our return interview service is available to Local Children’s Safeguarding Boards, councils and police authorities. If you are a professional seeking one-to-one advice, or want to discuss our training offer and how it can be tailored to your organisation’s needs, please ask for one of our team leaders.

The Jack Raine Community Foundation.

Location: Yorkshire and Humber

We work on education, prevention and victim support on CSE. Referrals are either referred from The Police, Local Authority, Sports clubs and third sector partnerships or self-referred by parents or the children and their friends. Education; information workshops, education programs and activity projects, for parents, children, teenagers and young adults make up the core of our education which naturally leads to prevention work. Prevention: is a high priority and our workshops set a strong and practical message. Our Early Intervention, Prevention & Aftercare Support Team (EIPAST) promotes awareness to children and teenage boys and girls as well as encouraging positive attitudes towards children and teenage girls by young men aged between 17 and 25 years old. Gang related CSE and work with the Traveller, Roma and Gypsy communities are other areas of workshop delivery. Support: Parents are supported when they believe or their children are involved in CSE activity through social media, older teenagers and young adults, gang activity, drug related, grooming parties or missing from home on a regular basis. We can liaise with The Police on parents behalf in the first instant of a crime being committed and reported. Children; are supported in many ways after becoming victims of CSE a bespoke support service will be delivered in partnership with parents, education and other support agencies. Respite; residential support and safe-house; in 2013 we have ran a pilot respite break / holiday for children and their families who have all become victims of this terrible crime against children. The mental and physical exhaustion parents have to cope with is incredibly difficult. Maintaining and keeping as much normality in running the family home, being parents to brothers and sisters while supporting the child or children who have become victims of predators and grooming gangs.
