Drive to Raise Awareness of CSE Continues

A two-year communications strategy for CSE has been agreed by all the relevant partners and can be viewed here.

This follows the appointment of a communications officer dedicated to raising awareness of CSE in a collaborative venture between Northamptonshire and Leicestershire Police, who has also produced bespoke communications plans for each county. Click here to view the Northamptonshire plan.

A major campaign is planned to launch in February 2018 which will directly target teenage boys and address the risks of online gaming.

Other strands of communications activity will address the issue of gangs and organised crime where CSE is a feature and another which focuses on children with learning difficulties and other vulnerabilities, for example children with the added vulnerability of LGBT who have fewer safe places to explore their sexuality and may resort to relationships that are hidden on and offline.

Work has already started on the first few actions detailed in the plan and regular updates will be given.

Partners are thanked for their support in helping achieve the aims set out in the agreed strategy and it is hoped that, where appropriate, they will carry out their own communications activity in their area of business, using the attached strategy and plan as a guide.
