Free course set to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation
On 19th November 'Keep Them Safe' a free Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness course for parents will be launched.
We have developed the free course in partnership with leading charity Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation (Pace) as a response to the results of a recent YouGov survey - Are parents in the picture - Professional and Parental perspectives of child sexual exploitation?.
The survey showed that only 12% of parents can identify all the key signs of child sexual exploitation and that 70% of teachers think a lack of parental knowledge is the main barrier to identifying and preventing cases of child sexual exploitation.
The short course (20-30mins) aims to equip parents with the information they need to protect their children from sexual exploitation.
Keep them safe will help parents to:
- Understand child sexual exploitation
- Find out how to spot the signs
- Know who to report any concerns to
