Seen and Heard

Sadly, too often the signs that children and young people are being sexually abused or exploited are being missed because healthcare professionals don’t know what to look for.

To combat this problem the Department of Health and leading national charity The Children’s Society have developed an engaging and interactive eLearning course. This is designed to enable all healthcare workers to spot the signs of child sexual abuse and exploitation, and help them create an environment where young people are more likely to disclose.

The hour long course features a powerful drama about a young boy called Tyler, and will help healthcare workers be more aware of what to look for when they come into contact with a child or young person. Applying the learnings from the course means you will be able to help create a widespread change in the way children and young people experience health settings.

Taking the course is easy, just visit Once you’ve completed the eLearning module, you can also sign up to become a Seen and Heard champion and spread the word about the course to others.
