Join the Fight Against Child Sexual Exploitation
National Charity NWG Network asks all to unite against child sexual exploitation for their National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day – 18th March 2019.
Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18 into sexual activity.
The National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding child sexual exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children.
Previous National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Days have seen hundreds of events take place across the UK, ranging from poster and leaflet displays to whole authorities embarking on targeted campaigns across public services and shopping centres.
Working with over 13,000 professionals across the UK to help prevent and raise awareness of child sexual exploitation, NWG Network continue to leverage the strength of that network in order to tackle the problem head on.
‘Each year we use our campaign to raise awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation and encourage everyone in our society to tackle the issues of exploitation of our children.
This year we are introducing a wear red element to the existing Helping Hand messages. If you ensure you share our social media messages along with the web address to point everyone to signs and symptoms and where to go for help it would be another step to spreading the word and helping to reduce the abuse of our children.
NWG is committed to raising awareness and training professionals to help create zero tolerance to child sexual exploitation. Your donation will help us continue this invaluable work and ensure that as many people as possible think, spot and speak out about against exploitation of the young and vulnerable and help heal the wounds of victims and their families. Donations can be made through our text ‘VOICE’ to 70007 and through our donation page'. Commented Sheila Taylor MBE, CEO
