St Giles SOS+ Service

St Giles SOS+ Service

From 13th May 2024 St. Giles Trust will be delivering North Yorkshire SOS+, a new exploitation support service for children and young adults in York and North Yorkshire.

The SOS+ service will:

  • Support those aged 10-25 who have been victims of, or are at risk of all forms of exploitation, and those who repeatedly go missing
  • Focus on early intervention and prevention via community outreach and awareness raising across youth and educational settings
  • Provide support to victims of exploitation to cope with the immediate impacts of the crime and to rebuild resilience from the harm experienced
  • Provide bespoke support via keyworkers, who will establish the most appropriate type of support dependent upon needs, support can be offered via brief intervention or longer-term support
  • Include support from those with lived experience of exploitation
  • Capture the voice of the child/young adult and ensure this is fed into local arrangements
  • Raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of all forms of exploitation
  • Improve outcomes for the individuals supported by the service, across a range of pathways

There are four ‘Lunch & Learn’ sessions being held, where you can find out more information on North Yorkshire SOS+. These will be held on: Please contact nyscp@northyorks.gov.uk for more details on how to join.
