Stop it before it starts – new CSE early intervention service for boys and young men in Hackney

Barnardo’s are pioneering a new CSE service in Hackney funded by the City Bridge Trust.  Historically unseen and even unheard, young people experiencing CSE are rarely recognised until it is too late. This 2-pronged innovative new service aims to:

Stop it before it starts, by providing a new CSE early intervention service for boys and young men in Hackney. This specialist intervention will provide these young people with the skills and know-how to understand CSE and in particular how their vulnerabilities could lead to exploitation by others.

 Raise awareness of CSE within the Voluntary and Community Sector and increase their capacity to recognise the signs of CSE and how to respond and safeguard all young people. This in-depth 4-6 week programme will be adapted for each organisation’s own individual needs and delivered within an agreed timeframe.

For more information on criteria and to refer into the service, please see the flyer HERE.
