Look Closer Campaign October 202220 September 2022
The Children’s Society’s latest #Look Closer campaign week of action running from October 3rd to the 9th 2022.
“#Look Closer is The Children’s Society’s national exploitation campaign run in partnership with the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre and the British Transport Police. It aims to raise awareness of child exploitation and abuse, with a particular focus on how this may be visible in public spaces. The campaign also seeks to challenge assumptions and stereotypes of victimhood and highlights that child exploitation can happen anywhere, and that any child from any community can be a victim of all types of exploitation.
This October, our campaign has a particular focus on gender and how our assumptions can impact the way we safeguard and support young victims of exploitation. We have therefore developed a new resource for professionals and a new session on our Programme of Learning focused on gender and exploitation. These include asking professionals to consider how they can be more inclusive of trans and non-binary young people, in order to better protect them from harm.”
“We also wish to invite you to join our #Look Closer October 2022 Launch Briefing on Monday the 3rd of October.
Join The Children’s Society to learn more about the latest #LookCloser campaign week’s focus, alongside information on the campaign’s overall aims and objectives, signposting to materials and ideas on how to use these to raise awareness of child exploitation and abuse in your area.“
