This report presents the findings from an evaluation of a prevention programme on sexual exploitation, delivered by the nia project in partnership with the Children’s Society (TCS). The programme was delivered across London from September 2007 to December 2010, with three broad aims:
The evaluation was commissioned by the nia project to focus on the three core strands of the programme: workshops with young people, delivered in schools and youth settings, to mixed or single gender groups; training for professionals on sexual exploitation; training of young people to be co-facilitators in sessions for professionals. Two conferences were also held as part of the programme, the first in 2009, led by young women for young women, and the second for professionals in 2010, themed around hearing young people’s voices. Preliminary findings from the evaluation were presented at the latter.
