The Flowhesion Foundation is thrilled to be working in collaboration with Dr Jessica Eaton, director of victim focus to develop and tailor CPD, training and literature material to raise awareness of Child sexual exploitation amongst members of BAME communities. The menace of CSE has long been documented in Britain but has come to the fore of late due to media coverage and dramatisations of high profile cases. There are however gaps in the provision of tailored CSE training programmes for BAME and particular south-asian communites. This could largely be attributed to the ‘taboo’ nature of CSE within the diaspora. Our collaboration with Dr Eaton aims to redress this balance. Dr Eaton’s lecturing, research, experience and contribution to the field are unprecedented as well as nationally recognised and she is currently writing the national frontline briefing on sexual explotation and mental health of adults in the Uk. We are therefore excited to be collaborating with her on this much needed work.
