Event description

Description

Any young person can be a victim of child sexual exploitation.


The NSPCC Prevalence Study which has been adopted for the National Strategy for the Prevention of CSE indicates that roughly 5% of 11-17 year old children have experienced abuse. This equates to approximately 220,000 children or, on average, 50 children in every state funded secondary school in England and Wales.


Child sex exploitation is a crime that invariably has long term impact upon the victims, their family and the community as a whole. It is also a particularly difficult crime for professionals working with young people to detect and prevent, primarily because often young people don’t know they are being exploited and often the perpetrators aim to isolate the young person from those around them and encourage them to disengage with support. In this training, we explain current exploitation models and look at how to recognise the signs of CSE. We also examine best practice for responding to concerns, referring and signposting and discuss ways for larger organizations to adopt a consistent approach that best supports their young people.


Brook has been at the forefront of the fight against CSE. We have worked with the Department of Health to create resources for professionals and our highly regarded Spotting the Signs proforma, co-authored with The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) is used in organizations across the country. This training is delivered by our education specialists who work with young people on a day to day basis, either in schools, colleges or youth hubs or in our Milton Keynes clinic.


“This was a really difficult day, but it is probably the best training I have ever done. It really helped having authentic people working in the field. It felt very credible.” Police Officer, Margate

“I felt helpless as a teacher but now I feel as if I can do something. I can’t beat the gangs but I can support my students in a way I never felt I could before. Thank you. Teacher, Gravesend.


Suitable for: anybody working with young people.
