- It's Not Okay - A Free Seminar
‘It’s Not Okay’ is a joint initiative between York Safeguarding Children Board and the NSPCC to raise awareness and understanding about child sexual abuse and exploitation. To support the campaign, there will be a free seminar on Tuesday 24 May titled 'Supporting local communities to respond to the issue of child sexual abuse'.
The seminar will be delivered by Cate Meredith and Helen Westerman from the NSPCC and Louise Kelly from City of York Council. It is particularly relevant to voluntary and community groups, faith organisations and community leaders.
The seminar will cover:
- What is child sexual abuse and exploitation?
- What gets in the way of children telling and adults hearing?
- How to create a safe culture for children in your organisation; and
- Resources for you to use with children, families and the wider community.
The seminar will take place at West Offices, Station Rise, York, Y01 6AGA.
