Background to 'Looking out for Lottie'
Developed with NHS Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex, ‘Lottie’ offers health and social care and education professionals the opportunity to train on key aspects of online CSE - gaining insight into the process and implications for the victim and groomer. It is an interactive and immersive simulation, for use by both professionals and young people, on how young people are groomed online for sexual exploitation. It follows the story, on social media, of a schoolgirl Lottie and how she becomes involved with Jake, a seemingly plausible young man. By following the simulation, professionals are able to gain insight into the process, and the behaviour of the groomer and the victim. Two versions are available:
a) For professionals: to learn how to spot and highlight grooming behaviour and, vitally, how to manage behaviours resulting from child sexual exploitation
b) For direct work with young people: to learn about grooming methods to look out for demonstrated in a real-life scenario, to make decisions and understand the emotions and actions of the characters.
