Barnardo's is offering free training for those working in the night time economy to help keep young people safe from exploitation.
The course is called 'Empowering the night time economy to recognise and respond to child sexual exploitation'. It is 3 hours long, and can be tailored to suit audience requirements.
The training will cover:
- How you may spot a vulnerable young person and what the signs might be, including specific signs that may be relevant to your workplace.
- Examples of case studies, lesson learnt across the country and what you can do to make a difference.
- Your social responsibility and legal back up to support you acting on and reporting concerns.
- The appropriate response in your place of work e.g. chain of command. Who would you tell? Where would you seek support?
Any organisation interested in developing their staff’s knowledge of this government priority area should email Kate Bunting, Barnardo’s National Programme Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
