A South Yorkshire-wide campaign to raise awareness of the signs of child sexual exploitation has been launched today.
The ‘Spot the Signs’ campaign, a partnership between South Yorkshire Police, all four local councils, Crimestoppers, the National Working Group (NWG) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), was unveiled at the Carlton Park Hotel, Rotherham.
The campaign includes a series of posters with 14 different signs that a young person is a victim of sexual exploitation. These will be displayed in prominent public locations including on buses, in shopping centres and doctor’s surgeries.
There will also be an online marketing campaign to help raise awareness of young people and how they can report any concerns and where they can get help and advice.
