In a blog for Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Awareness Day, policy officer Richard Crellin considers why it is important that everyone understands how children can be better protected from child sexual exploitation.
The Warm and Informed project was launched in September 2014 as a partnership between Northern Gas Networks (NGN) and The Children’s Society, focusing on two low income areas
of Bradford. The project was intended to build on previous joint work by these organisations involving giving fuel poverty advice at children’s centres.
The damaging consequences of child sexual abuse is becoming increasingly apparent, affecting children’s mental health and placing them at greater risk of going missing, misusing substances or offending.
For today’s National Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Awareness Day our services are running and taking part in events across the country. Here a practitioner answers our questions about working with young people at risk of sexual abuse.
