Child Exploitation Safeguarding Masterclass, 25 March 2022
The masterclass will give partners an overview of what child exploitation and contextual safeguarding looks like across North Yorkshire, what some of the themes and trends are that we are seeing for young people, especially those aged 10 -18. The masterclass will cover the following areas:
- The picture of child exploitation across North Yorkshire, where and how young people are being exploited as well as helping partners understand how they can help identify signs and indicators of exploitation within their schools, communities and local areas.
- Emerging themes and trends around young people’s drug and other substance use
- An overview of the impact of modern slavery and human trafficking for young people in North Yorkshire and the National Referral Mechanism.
- Partnership Information Sharing – what should partners be sharing with the Police, how should they share the information and what happens to information they share?
- Consideration of how we use language around children and parents/carers where children are at risk of or experiencing exploitation – how does our language shape professionals responses to child exploitation and what do professionals need to be cognisant of in their practice.
The masterclass is suitable for professionals working with Law Enforcement, Children and Family Services, Education (Primary, Secondary, Further and Higher Ed), Drug and Alcohol Services, Youth Justice, Community and Youth Work, Health, CAMHS, Community Safety Partnerships, third and voluntary sector service providers. Furthermore the masterclass will also be of value for those working or who have involvement with young people aged 10 – 18 who are embedded within our communities who may potentially see indicators of exploitation e.g. community/faith groups, outreach delivery workers, housing providers etc.
