Invisible Community Play
Footlights Theatre Schools are being supported by Trafford Housing Trust Community Panels in our mission to tackle Child Sexual Exploitation through early intervention prevention. We are working with Trafford Safeguarding Partnership , Trafford CSE Lead,Talk Shop, Greater Manchester Police Trafford CSE Team and Project Phoenix as part of their week of action “It’s Not Okay” campaign. The event will be devoted to raising awareness about missing young people and the links to Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), especially how perpetrators use different approaches towards children and young people and strive to operate unseen.
The Invisible play is designed for secondary schools and lasts for around 70 minutes. We have adapted the performance to encourage the community, parents and their children over the age of 12 to come and watch this performance for FREE. We would also like to invite professionals who work with young people and parents who would be interested in watching and learning more about what Footlights are doing to tackle these issues in Trafford and across Greater Manchester.
