Sometimes it’s hard for us to see when we are not being treated right and this is when family, friends, neighbours and communities are so important.
Sexual exploitation can involve people of a similar age as well as adults. It could involve your son, daughter, sister, brother, cousin, friend or customer. It’s not always easy to spot the signs but it’s up to all of us to look out for them.
The Say Something if You See Something and Spot the Signs campaign wants to encourage anyone who is worried about someone being exploited to tell someone who can help.
In Hackney you can speak to a social worker: 0208 356 5500. In the City you can speak to a social worker: 0207 332 3621.
