Event description:

Are you a parent? Do you work with children and young adults? Do you feel you are equipped with the necessary skills to spot those most vulnerable children and young people to protect them from exploitation? Well the abusers are a step ahead of most of us in being able to identify who they can target. This event aims to educate us in two areas of significant and sadly, somewhat topical, concern for our young, Radicalisation and Sexual Exploitation. This event aims to explore the tactics predators use to identify those who they can brain wash to carry out horrific terrorist attacks. Peter Thompson and Sharon Ross are both retired Northumbria Police Officers who have a wealth of policing experience. Peter had been instrumental in the initial delivery of the Prevent agenda since 2008, and during their time working together in the department, they delivered awareness training to over 10,000 frontline staff from a number of statutory partners. Sharon became the force 'Channel Police Practitioner' and was seconded to the North East Counter Terrorism Unit. The talks could cover a wide range of issues, including; ... Prevent Duty Guidance for NHS/Local Authority Safeguarding requirements, The local threats for our region, including far right extremism Vulnerabilities linked to extremism The radicalisation process and how people may get caught up in it What to look out for, and issues that could cause you concern When to report an issue and how to do so Case studies Issues with social media/internet The Channel process (multi agency approach to tackling radicalisation and extremism) Rachel and Chloe are both Survivours of the Rotherham sexual exploitation, case, recently dramatised on TV. They will talk through some of the horrific experiences they faced in order to improve the understanding by all professionals on issues of grooming and abuse.
