Bwise2 sexual exploitation

Barnardo's provides a range of services to support children at risk and prevent future harm from neglect, abuse and sexual exploitation. Last year they commissioned a suite of illustrations for Bwise2 sexual exploitation - a pack enabling teachers, social workers and counsellors to educate young people about sexual exploitation with honesty and realism. The material is all based on the experiences of young people supported by a specialist Barnardo’s service. Launched in November 2007, the pack illustrates the process of 'grooming' - the relationships, behaviour and events leading to sexual abuse - as well as helping teenagers develop strategies for prevention. Copies are available from Barnardo's online shop.
