About the Project
Our project enables young people from different backgrounds to express themselves as individuals. Working with a secondary school in Warwickshire, young people will learn how to keep safe and spot the signs of sexual abuse, online grooming and child sexual exploitation. They will also learn how to be ‘ethical bystanders’ so they can share this knowledge and help keep their friends and family safe.
