Young People at Risk of Exploitation

While more vulnerable young people are reaching out to online support groups and social media platforms at this time, it's likely that children and young people will be even more at risk of online grooming and exploitation. Llamau's Missing Children's Team delivers direct interventions for Missing Children, Child Exploitation, Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery and have a Support Worker who delivers Barnardo's 'Real Love Rocks' programme, alongside tailored interventions. 

If you have any young people who you are working with, or younger children in families, who you feel would benefit from this work which includes: 

Primary age:

Relationships: what they are and what makes a happy, safe and fair relationship.

Grooming: what it is and how to get help if a child feels uncomfortable.

Keeping Safe: how to stay safe, especially as they begin to get an increased independence and go to secondary school.

Being Online: How to keep safe when online, on phones, computers, tablets and when gaming.

Secondary age:

Relationships: What they are and what makes a happy, safe, fair and consensual relationship.

Child Sexual Exploitation: What it means, the different ways it might happen and where to get help if needed.

Keeping Safe: Encouraging young people to think about how to stay safe when they are out and about; highlighting the added risk that alcohol, drugs or not being in contact with parents/careers can bring.

Impact of Watching Porn and Sexting: The impact of watching porn and the possible consequences. The risks involved in sexting and how to stay safe online.
