PhotoVoice and the National Working Group network for Sexually Exploited Children have developed a new resource for professionals and service providers working with young people affected by, or at risk of, sexual exploitation.
As part of PhotoVoice’s ‘Having Our Say 3’ project, training opportunities are available for staff across the UK on how to best use this resource.
The resource has been developed through direct engagement with young people, and draws upon up-to-date policy from government recommendations for the sector. It provides practitioners with a range of activities to ensure they can provide the best possible provision, which includes:
It incorporates Local Safeguarding Children’s Board mandatory provision, as well as drawing upon research of best practice from Youth, Education and Violence Against Women and Girls services.
“A versatile, incredibly useful resource for professionals. It guides the trainer, yet gives them freedom to explore relevant issues dependent on the group type.”
“The resource opens avenues to explore the Child’s voice, journey and wishes and feelings in a safe constructive manner.”
The training includes practical activities, support for running group sessions with young people and tips for using creativity within your practice. It is open to all practitioners of all experiences.
Training can also be provided at your location for the same rate, plus travel costs. Minimum 8 people, maximum 18 people.
