Operation Makesafe

The City of London Police and Hackney Police have launched joint initiatives with the City of London Corporation, Hackney Council and the CHSCP which calls on the assistance of the local business community to help identify potential victims of child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Operation Makesafe will seek to raise awareness within the hospitality, transport and licensed premises trades around the possible warning signs to look out for when coming into contact with young people they believe may be at risk of sexual exploitation.

Further information can be found here for the City of London and here for Hackney.

Parents Against Child Exploitation

(Pace) is the leading national charity working with parents and carers whose children are sexually exploited.  Pace works alongside parents and carers of children who are – or are at risk of being – sexually exploited by perpetrators external to the family.

Pace is a unique resource that helps parents across the UK understand what is happening to their child and how parents are the prime agents in helping their child exit exploitative relationships. It does this by offering:

  • One-to-one telephone advice and support to parents
  • Facilitating meetings with similarly-affected parents for peer support
  • Advising how to establish rights as parents and work in partnership with statutory agents such as police and social workers
  • Advice and support when pursuing disruption and prosecution of the perpetrators of child sexual exploitation
  • Befriending scheme
