We Are Safer London

 

Safer London works one-to-one with young women and men affected by or at risk of Child Sexual Exploitation. We also work with the families and carers of those affected.  We deliver training and consultancy to support young people affected by CSE. 

Our team of Advocates (YPAs) provide a safe and confidential space to talk about their experiences and relationships, creating a  trusted relationship over six months. Whilst the service is confidential we work extensively with professional and support networks so that young people are safe.

We know that we need to educate as many young people about healthy relationships and consent –crucial to preventing sexual exploitation later down the line, so we developed our Education & Group Work programmes. And for young men who are displaying harmful sexual behaviour, we launched our Young Men's Service.

Get in touch with us to see where we work, and if we aren't in your area we usually have ideas about who can help!
