‘You are not alone’
Hampshire Constabulary is beginning two months of communications aimed at engaging with children vulnerable to, or at direct risk of, sexual abuse and exploitation.
The main product is their webpage at www.bit.do/you-are-not-alone that encourages children to think about the nature of their relationships, help them identify abuse and then report any concerns.

As part of Hampshire Constabulary’s on going commitment to working in partnership to safeguard children and young people, the Strategic Partnership Team has developed 2 bespoke newsletters; Youth News for young people aged 11 – 17 years and Safer Schools & Partners for professionals working with children, young people and their families. These can be accessed on the above link.
The newsletters have been developed in response to consultation with young people, schools and partners relating to improving communication, where suggestions were made that regular e-newsletters would be an effective method to share relevant information with young people and partners as a means to raising awareness of risk and signposting readers to additional advice, information, support, resources, events and development opportunities.
