We’re a Luton based Christian and Muslim charity working to strengthen resilience within faith communities against child sexual exploitation and other forms of harm. We challenge misleading and harmful messages that can surround child sexual exploitation and other safeguarding circumstances. We offer bespoke training sessions for charities, public sector professionals, faith leaders and families, and workshops for young people.
