Make a pledge and support National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day
Show your support for national child sexual exploitation awareness day (Sunday March 18) by making a personal pledge to help tackle this horrific crime.
The day aims to encourage everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse.
People are asked to write a personal pledge on their hands and then post a photo of it on social media using #HelpingHands. The pledge can be anything, from speaking out, to educating others.
The day is being supported by Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton councils along with West Midlands Police and partner organisations who are working together to raise the profile of CSE through the see me, hear me campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to protect children at risk by increasing people’s understanding of child sexual exploitation and how to spot the warning signs in a child or young person’s behaviour that may indicate something is wrong.
