Faiths Against Child Sexual Exploitation (FACES) is Luton based Christian and Muslim partnership that’s been working to strengthen resilience in faith communities and enhance child sexual exploitation awareness since 2016. We’re a registered charity developing bespoke training covering child sexual exploitation, and identity and inclusion. We work with charities, public sector professionals, faith leaders and families to raise awareness and build understanding. We offer youth workshops for teenagers and challenge misleading and damaging messages in the discourse surrounding child sexual exploitation. As a faith-based organisation, we centre our values of compassion, justice, and peace throughout our work.
We’ve trained people across England in child sexual explotiation and on the impacts prejudice has on safeguarding. This includes people from mosques, churches, schools, voluntary and community groups and local authority services.
We work with children and young people in school, faith and youth work settings, using themes from our faiths to explore ideas around value and identity, communication, healthy and unhealthy relationships.
We’re a partnership of churches, mosques and Christian and Muslim charities and community groups based in Luton. We work across sectors with individuals and organisations to carry out our projects.
