The service is based on five principles:

  • Prevention

The service supports young people who are at risk of, or have been, sexually exploited. Every time a young person is referred to the service, a risk assessment is completed to identify the level of risk and the needs of that individual. Support workers focus on raising young people’s awareness of risky situations, whilst bolstering their self-esteem to support them to make informed choices about their lives. Whilst supporting young people at risk is the priority, their family can also be affected.

Our service has dedicated face-to-face support staff for families affected by 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.
