Abuse thrives in silence and denial, so one of our main aims is to take opportunities, as people of faith – to speak out about this injustice. When we speak up, it may make it easier for victims to tell someone what is happening to them, and it challenges the secrecy that abusers rely on.
But it is not just the speaking that matters – it is the speaking up together. As Muslims and Christians, we believe that our faiths are an inspiration for tackling injustices of every kind. Abuse occurs in every community, and we believe our best chance of preventing it is by working together in partnership.
Our FACES launch event was held in July 2016. Read more about that here: Launch of FACES
In March 2018 we hosted a conference in Luton in line with the National CSE Awareness Day to highlight actions taken locally and nationally to tackle child sexual exploitation.
