Child Exploitation Awareness Day

Wednesday 23rd November at The Lakelands school 4-7 pm. The event has the aim of raising awareness in the community of Child Exploitation and Contextual Safeguarding

Contextual Safeguarding is an approach to understanding, and responding to, young people’s experiences of significant harm beyond their families. It recognises that the different relationships that young people form in their neighbourhoods, schools and online can feature violence and abuse. Parents and carers have little influence over these contexts, and young people’s experiences of extra-familial: we want our message to be very clear; the only way we can tackle exploitation is to raise awareness amongst our communities including assisting others to know the signs/indicators of criminal & sexual exploitation so that children can be protected from harm. We are therefore looking to hold an event on Wednesday 23rd November at The Lakelands school 4-7 pm

Aim of event is to:

· Offer support, advice & guidance to parents; children and young people or anyone wishing to know more about exploitation within Shropshire.

· Raise community awareness of the key indicators of exploitation & how to report concerns.

· Ensure that as a community the issues around exploitation are tackled together.

· Understand the support that is available for you and your children.

· We will also be joined by bright stars boxing club towards during the event who support with diverting children away from criminal exploitation into positive activities.
