CSE Awareness Campaign 2018

The North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board’s partners are supporting the NWG’s National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day and extending it during the week of 18th - 25th March 2018. NYSCB partners will be joining forces to highlight the issues surrounding CSE; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children.

Within North Yorkshire we have seen a rise in the use of the internet in cases where CSE have been a feature. During this year’s campaign we have developed a quiz aimed at parents and carers to gain their knowledge of CSE and online safety. This quiz will also sign post parents and carers to useful resources and organisations to find out more information or if need report concerns.

The NYSCB are calling on as many Parent’s and Carer’s from across North Yorkshire to take part in a short online quiz. The quiz is aimed to help keep children safe online and help parents and carers to identify any online risks. The quiz has been launched in conjunction with a national campaign known as ‘Stop Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)’. 

Professionals are encouraged to make parents and carers aware of the campaign and encourage them to complete a short quiz by visiting https://consult.northyorks.gov.uk/snapwebhost/s.asp?k=151853433158.

To help spread the message agencies and professionals can share the link through face to face contact with parents and carers and through their social media channels to help promote awareness of CSE and Online Safety. When promoting the campaign in social media, the recommended hashtags for posts are #cseday18 and #nyscb.

A toolkit has been developed and is available from http://safeguardingchildren.co.uk/admin/uploads/campaigns/cse-campaign-toolkit-v2.pdf
