A number of innovative and practical resources have been developed to help practitioners, parents and safe people (adults and friends) have discussions with young people about sexual exploitation.
WUD U? app: An award winning app designed by Barnardos to educate young people about behaviours that could place them at risk of sexual exploitation.
Protect and Respect session plans: An education package for young people developed by the NSPCC which can be found online in PDF format. The package provides ideas for talking to young people about exploitation and includes links to three brief videos. These videos can help begin a conversation about sexual exploitation with a young person and can help them identify it in their relationship. ‘Jay’ describes child sexual exploitation from a young woman’s perspective. ‘When someone cares’ describes how children and young people should be treated and contrasts this with sexual exploitation. ‘Losing control - my story is real’ tells the story of the sexual trafficking of a young woman from Eritrea (a country in Africa) to Europe.
