In the run up to National Child Exploitation day on Thursday 18th March, Basis Young People will be running an online campaign around the theme #CEAHasntGoneAway.
From the 1st-18th March, we will be sharing posts on social media to raise awareness around key issues of Child Exploitation and Abuse.
This campaign will also include our online conference: Improving Responses to Child Exploitation on Tuesday 16th March, which will feature the re-launch of our service offer for supporting victims and survivors of sexual abuse and exploitation.
It is more important than ever that we come together to improve societal and professional responses to this issue. Here’s how you can get involved…
Follow our campaign’s hashtag on social media and sharing our posts on key messages around Child Exploitation and Abuse. As part of this campaign, we are also re-launching our Basis Young People’s Instagram, which you can follow here. You can also add our Facebook frame to your profile picture to show your support, which you can find here.
This campaign will culminate in National Child Exploitation Awareness Day on Thursday 18th March. To find out more about this Awareness Day and how you can get involved, please visit NWG’s website here and follow their hashtag #CEADay21.
A key part of this day is sharing #HelpingHands with pledges to raise awareness of CSE/A written on our hands. Basis Young People staff and partners will be posting our helping hands across our social media and would love for you to join us, tag us in to your posts or send your hands to us via email and we can post them on our social media.
Here are some images of our pledges from previous years.
