If you have an immediate concern or believe someone may be in danger, call 999 or 101 (non-emergency) to speak to local Police
We offer the following services and would be happy to talk to you about how they can help you.
Our awareness sessions are delivered to schools, families, community groups and professionals. By raising awareness we can help prevent exploitation occurring.
One to One Support
For children or young people who are at risk of being exploited, we give them a dedicated support worker who works with them individually to address their risk factors.
Disruption & Youth Work
Complimenting our support services, our Youth Work team will introduce children and young people to positive activities like sport or music enabling them to socialise in a safe environment and build their resilience to risk.
Some children and young people who have had their risk of exploitation addressed still need further help. Our transition process provides them with life skills, mentoring and a longer period of help as they move back to normal day to day life.
In partnership with the University of Derby, our Education Worker will develop new resources and offer educational sessions with a real focus on hard to reach groups and those with special educational needs or a disability. This will include a greater presence online. By improving understanding at an early stage, we can help keep the most vulnerable children and young people safe.
Our independent family support service recognises the impact that exploitation can have on the whole family. This work helps families to understand what has happened to their child, provides them with emotional and practical help and empowers families to work with us to disrupt exploitation whilst ensuring their wider needs are met.
Outreach enables us to engage children and young people who might otherwise struggle to access our services or don't know about the support we can offer. By being visibile in the community we can actively raise our profile with children and young people whilst also discouraging potential predators.
For many years we have been keen to share our experiences and best practice ideas with other professionals working in Childrens Services and related professions
