Safeguarding and Prejudice

Misconceptions around faith and ethnicity and other parts of childrens’ identity result in safeguarding failures, which has been seen in high profile CSE cases such as in Rotheram. Misconceptions can be due to prejudices; we know that everyone holds prejudice in some form, so being able to explore and discuss this openly is important in order to minimise the negative impact it has on protecting children.

Our brand new training will be piloted in September 2019 in Luton. The training will help you:

  • Identify CSE and other forms of exploitation
  • Recognise prejudice in safeguarding responses
  • Understand how stereotypes influence safeguarding responses
  • Explore the prevalance of racial bias
  • Understand the principles for working with young people
  • Understand the importance of participation

We have very limited spaces on our free pilot session, contact us admin@faces.org.uk to book your place.


Child Sexual Exploitation

Breaking The Silence

The first step toward identifying, addressing and preventing sexual exploitation is helping people understand it. There are lots of myths and misconceptions that cloud our perception of this kind of abuse, so it’s really important that clear messages are available that cut through some of the confusion.

We’ve delivered our Breaking The Silence training to faith leaders across the UK. By increasing understanding and knowledge of CSE, we can increase the number of people who are aware of the warning signs of abuse and equip them to take action- protecting more children from harm.
