CSE awareness conference
An interactive conference aimed at raising awareness of the dangers around Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is due to be held in the county this autumn.
Decision makers from across Norfolk are being invited to the event being held at the Mercure Hotel in Norwich on Wednesday 28 September 2016.
A number of key speakers have been lined up so far including;
- Lorin LaFave from the Breck Foundation
- Jonathan Baggaley from the NCA's CEOP
- Jeremy Oppenheim from the Home Office
The event entitled Mind the Gap, aims to educate professionals and fill knowledge gap which often exists around young people’s use of social media and how they make use of it in daily life.
Detective Superintendent Julie Wvendth, Chair of the county’s CSE Strategic Sub Group and Head of Norfolk Constabulary’s Safeguarding and Harm Reduction Department said: “Child sexual exploitation is child abuse and can affect any child, anytime, anywhere. CSE has no barriers any child can be sexually exploited no matter what culture, ethnicity or religion.
“Everyone has a role to play in raising awareness of CSE, the safeguarding of our children is everybody’s business.
“It is crucial decision makers from agencies across the county are aware of the dangers social media can pose to enable us to take the right steps to help young people.
“We are delighted such key speakers are taking time out of their busy schedules to help spread the message in Norfolk.”
The event is being sponsored by Norfolk Constabulary and Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.
