The Children’s Society in Lancashire – Street Safe
Acting Programme Manager – Joanna Hunt
Street Safe Lancashire works throughout the county to support young people – boys and girls – at risk of child sexual exploitation and missing from home.
What we do
- Provide direct support and advocacy to individual young people, tailored to their needs. We work with them to achieve the best outcomes and enable them to have a say about what happens in their lives.
- Work in schools and other settings to deliver awareness raising sessions, prevention and group work for young people. Our aim is to ensure they understand concepts like grooming, healthy and exploitative relationships and how to keep safe in the real world and on-line.
- Deliver advice and training to professionals and awareness sessions for parents and the wider community.
We are part of Lancashire’s multi-agency specialist child sexual exploitation teams, working alongside police, social care, health etc. We employ trained social workers and specialist staff.
