As part of an initiative in West Yorkshire, The Children’s Society have been looking at how Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities can keep their young people safe from child sexual exploitation. The Children’s Society
It explored the barriers to engagement through traditional agencies and support systems and examined what was needed to ensure that young people from these communities, their parents and carers were aware and informed.
As a result of this, a range of resources were produced to support communities and professionals and carers working with them. These included an animation which was the idea of a group of young people working on the project; an accompanying workbook; and some posters and leaflets translated into the main community languages of Romanian and Slovak.
