Barnardo’s Birmingham Space Project

Location: West Midlands

Birmingham Space is a service for children and young people who are abused or vulnerable to abuse through sexual exploitation. Birmingham Space works directly with abused children and young people to develop strategies that will enable them to move towards a safer and more settled lifestyle. Work is also undertaken with children and young people who are vulnerable, to reduce the risk of abuse through sexual exploitation. Birmingham Space provides presentations and training to adults working with children, to increase awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding child sexual exploitation, in order that vulnerable or abused children can be identified and appropriate interventions can be supported. Birmingham Space can provide preventative programmes in schools and youth settings to explore risk and vulnerability, define the difference between abusive and loving relationships, and raise awareness of how children can be targeted and exploited by adults.
