Child Exploitation and Boys Training

Boys and young man are highly unlikely to disclose to a that they are at risk of or experiencing Child Exploitation, whether sexual, criminal or both. There is still lot of stigma around male victims of violence and sexual abuse and we know that many young men do not see exploitation as abuse, especially when it comes or includes their peers.


It is important to tackle these societal stigmas, exercise professional curiosity and adopt a trauma-informed approach to be able to recognise boys and young men that are at risk or being exploited. 

We also facilitate educational workshops for Young People
