Child sexual exploitation & child criminal exploitation training & awareness

How we Achieve this


Awareness raising workshops, talks and presentations bring adult attention to the many forms of grooming, how to recognise and spot signs and how children and young people can be vulnerable to exploitation by individual perpetrators and groups “OCG – organised criminal gangs”.

Training Professionals

Training for professionals enables an understanding of the complexities of child sexual and child criminal exploitation, the importance of language, the awareness of victim blaming, the value of contextual safeguarding and resources to support the child or young person.


Resources are available to support adults working with children and young people.

Almost 19,000 children have been identified as sexual exploitation victims in England according to the National Crime Agency. (2021) 

“500,000 children estimated to experience child sexual abuse every year” – Home Office. Police recorded crime and outcomes 2020-21

The “Tackling child sexual abuse strategy” (Feb 2021) is the first of its kind outlining the Government’s vision for preventing, tackling, and responding to child sexual abuse in all its forms.

The strategy emphasises the need for everyone to play their part…

“across every part of Government, across all agencies, all sectors, charities, communities, technology companies and society more widely”.

South Ribble Borough Council – Taxi Driver Training

South Ribble Borough Council – Taxi Driver Training

The training provided by Karen at No Whispers CIC, was planned and tailored specifically around Taxi Licensing, giving drivers who attended clear guidance on CSE, CCE and County Lines issues.

Karen has a great presentation style with lots of opportunities to ask questions and talk about real life examples which all made for a really clear, enjoyable, and informative course.

Licensed drivers form a crucial part in safeguarding vulnerable people, by being the eyes and ears of the community, providing potentially important information to authorities.  The training focused on identifying and correctly reporting safeguarding issues, our licensed drivers came away with clear knowledge of this, which is crucial helping safeguard our local communities. 

We found the training extremely valuable and we would certainly recommend Karen and No Whispers CIC, to other Local Authorities looking for safeguarding training for their licensed taxi trade”
