The Campaign Report summarises the activities and outcomes of the ‘Could you spot the signs?’ child sexual exploitation awareness campaign. It was developed by the two local safeguarding children boards for Leicestershire, Rutland and Leicester through 2013/14.
“The LSCB is pleased to be supporting the National CSE Awareness Day taking place on Monday 18th March, led by the National Working Group for CSE (NWG). The LSCB is encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance approach to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children. CSE can affect any child including boys” Jenny Myers, Independent Chair of Leicester LSCB.
The aim of the day is to highlight the issues surrounding child sexual and criminal exploitation. As part of this, partners in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are being encouraged to wear red for the day this year and once again, to write a personal pledge on their hands to show support for the ‘Helping Hands’ campaign and post a photo on social media with the hashtag #HelpingHands and #CSEDay19
