Look Closer for Child Exploitation
As part of its prevention programme the Childrens Society are working with British Transport Police, East Midlands Special Operations Unit and Forces region-wide to launch the #LookCloser child exploitation campaign.
We know that public transport such as trams, coaches, trains and buses are used to facilitate the movement of a young person when they are being exploited, that fast food outlets and roadside services may be used for amenities and food stops, and hotels may be places where exploitation is occurring ‘behind closed doors’.
For each child or young person who is being exploited there will be different members of the public and staff working in the service industry who may see them and be in a position to protect them. However, they may be unaware of the signs that this person may be being exploited and need help
Below you will find some resources and you can read more about the campaign and access the full range of resources available here.
