Child Exploitation Awareness Day 18 March 2021

Today is Child Exploitation Awareness Day. The aim of today is to highlight the issues surrounding Child Exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children exploiting and abusing their peers. 

IT'S NOT OK.....young people's stories

youtube yp videos

To help highlight Child Exploitation awareness day a group of young people in Cumbria have put their creative minds together to make a series of films about child safety.

The young people involved in the production of these films are from across the county, and have helped write, animate and perform parts of the videos.

The three films, which use the stories of fictional characters to highlight the issues of healthy/unhealthy relationships, exploitation and online safety, have been made  as part of the CSCP and NSPCC's year-long campaign IT'S NOT OK.
