The Centre for Child Protection and NHS Kent, Surrey and Sussex are pleased to announce the launch of a new serious game simulation ‘Looking out for Lottie’ an interactive and immersive new game for both professionals and young people on how young people are groomed online for sexual exploitation by a seemingly benign young man. It follows the story of a school girl Lottie and how she becomes involved with a young man, Jake who is 18. It follows their ‘relationship’ on social media and allows professionals in one version and young people in another, to spot and highlight grooming behaviour. By following the game to its end players are able to see the true reveal about why Jake is behaving in the way he is and also what happens to Lottie.
The Centre will also be launching ‘Visiting Elliot’ an interactive simulation for all professionals who work with or monitor sex offenders in the community.
The launch will take place at the University of Kent on 11th November 2014. Book your place, bring your laptop, Ipad and/or tablet, see the presentations, view the training materials and other simulations developed by the CCP and have a go on the day.
Full schedule will be available nearer the time. Register your interest now.
