Safe and Free in Care
Safe and Free is combining its experience of working with victims of trafficking and to create educational information to help carers prevent grooming, CSE and trafficking within the care home.
Together with the Citywise Mentoring charity, we are creating an innovative programme for young people in care to help them learn how to protect themselves from grooming, CSE and trafficking. This programme is being delivered with the help of volunteer mentors. These mentors are inspirational, successful people have been trained to understand the risks of exploitation and how best to support these young people.
As well as educating the young people about exploitation, the programme is designed to help them work towards a happy and productive future by teaching them about life-skills, the world of work and preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and challenges that will come their way.
