Raising awareness of child sexual exploitation


More than 150 head teachers, teachers, lecturers and educational representatives attended a child sexual exploitation (CSE) awareness event this morning.

The event, organised by Staffordshire Police and the West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU), showcased Loudmouth Education and Training's innovative theatre production at Stoke City Football Club.

Loudmouth presented their two key CSE presentations; Working for Marcus for 13-year-olds and upwards and Helping Hands for eight to 11-year-olds. Over 17,000 took part in the Working for Marcus programme for 2017. Helping Hands is a new programme that has been funded by the Home Office and is supported by the NSPCC.

Detective Chief Inspector Nicki Furlong, CSE lead for Staffordshire Police, said: "This is an ideal opportunity for education professionals to see for themselves the high quality CSE prevention work first hand and hear about the impact of the programme on the children and young people who have participated."

Detective Inspector Kay Wallace, West Midlands Regional Coordinator for ROCU, said: "This was a fantastic opportunity to view Loudmouth's innovative and well researched safeguarding programmes. Both programmes provide a safe and engaging forum for children and young people to learn how to spot the signs and seek support around unhealthy relationships and different forms of abuse."

Loudmouth Education and Training is a highly respected and innovative theatre in education company. They provide a range of programmes and formats that can support safeguarding and relationship education. Visit http://www.loudmouth.co.uk for more information.
