Domestic Abuse, Sexual Exploitation and Consent - Key Stage 3&4

Domestic Abuse

Guidance, Resources and Advice

This is Abuse - A Government Campaign that ran from 2010-2014 targeted at 13 to 18 year olds. Part of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). Published December 2013.

'Time to listen' - a joined up response to child sexual exploitation and missing children -  There is no room for complacency and much more can be done to ensure that all children and young people.

One of the most difficult things that victims and survivors of abuse tell us is that the non-physical abuse they suffer is indescribable. Bruises and cuts are visible. But when someone insists they love you but bully, undermine and manipulate you, the effects are hidden. Questions survivors often ask are, how could I have let someone treat me like that?! And how did I let it carry on for so long?! - still blaming themselves. It is the small "low-level" abusive, everyday behaviour that results in people staying away, isolating themselves from friends, family and support networks. The impact of which affects children especially. Click on the title for more details about looking for the signs and the seeking help.

Recre8 - BAIT Take a Closer Look

BAIT is the third film produced from a collaboration between Recre8, Pretty Hate Productions and Daniel Alexander Films, following on from the success of both HURT and HOLD.

The film tells the story of a young schoolgirl, Grace, and her spiral down into the chilling and very real world of Child Sexual Exploitation.

The film has been developed with a unique and insightful resource, designed to be used alongside the film in an educational setting.
BAIT was funded and supported by Birmingham City Council and other credited supporters and has received nationwide attention as an important, relevant and needed piece of work that will only help our understanding of the issue of C.S.E and help the way that we tackle it.
