Understanding How Child Sexual Exploitation Affects Boys & Young Men in Sussex
6 December 2-4pm – book here
WiSE Project - new owl
Following the YMCA Downslink Group’s recent study into the experiences of boys and young men in Sussex, this session will look at how the community, professionals and children and young people themselves often respond differently to boys when it comes to child sexual exploitation, and consider what we can do about it.


This session is presented as part of the Learning Together to Safeguard the City Week where Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) and the Safe in The City Partnership Board come together to raise awareness of safeguarding issues and promote how we can best work together to protect, and improve outcomes for, the most vulnerable in our society.

The aim of this week is to reveal and debate some of the most important issues in our city which affect individuals, their families and the wider community, as well as exploring the responsibilities of professionals in their everyday work and their contribution in keeping people safe and well.

All sessions can be booked through the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway: learning.brighton-hove.gov.uk
