Training & Awareness in Child Sexual & Criminal Exploitation
WHat we do
“No Whispers” is a Community Interest Company based in Lancashire.
The key focus is on delivering training and awareness in child sexual and criminal exploitation to prevent abuse, offer support and enhance contextual safeguarding.
Training and workshops can be tailored to meet needs and interests of participants and are suitable for professionals, volunteers, and members of the community.
Training is interactive, informative & impactful.
Child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation are sensitive and difficult subjects to talk about, but we need to face the hard facts of reality and take on more robust safeguarding interventions and positive action to address the vulnerabilities of children and young people who are being affected by sexual and criminal exploitation.
It’s important to remember these forms of exploitation can happen to any child or young person regardless of their age, gender, ability or disability, race, culture, geographic location, or social background.
CPD – Child sexual exploitation awareness training Level 1 is available as a CPD Accredited Course.

Understanding “reachable” and “critical” moments in a child’s life, the importance of language, understanding victim blaming and the significant role an adult can play in contributing towards effective safeguarding towards disrupting child exploitation and tackling child sexual and criminal abuse.
“No Whispers” aims to inform, educate, and empower adults about child sexual and criminal exploitation. Training and workshops emphasise the importance of recognising and spotting signs, early intervention, and reporting to prevent children and young people from becoming victims of exploitation and abuse.
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.
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)
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”.
