Professionals

Information and resources for people who work with young people or have a duty of care towards a child. If you work with or come into contact with young people, it is your responsibility to make sure that you:

  • Understand what child sexual exploitation and abuse is
  • Can recognise the warning signs
  • Know who to contact and how to report any concerns

Some guidance is available through this website to help you in your role as a practitioner.

Support the campaign

Tackling child sexual exploitation is everyone’s responsibility. We need young people, parents and professionals across York to read and share the information on this website.

It’s Not OK awareness raising resource

Partners can use this resource on their own intranet systems to cascade learning to staff and volunteers. The first slide could be replaced by their own branding. However, we would wish the rest of the presentation, it’s branding and messages, to remain intact.

Free seminars

There are a number of FREE seminars taking place over 2015/2016 that support the "It's not okay" campaign.

City of York Safeguarding Children Board

The City of York's Safeguarding Children Board (CYSCB) is an statutory inter-agency  forum for agreeing how different services co-operate to protect children in York. We seek to ensure that the children of York are protected from all forms of abuse and neglect by ensuring that everybody working with children works effectively together.

CSA&E - The Police Response

For anyone who couldn't make it to the launch of the It's Not Okay campaign you can now download the presentation made by North Yorkshire Police at that event. The presentation sets out how the police respond in cases of Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.
