Collaboration Against Child Exploitation (CACE)

Collaboration Against Child Exploitation is a 7-week programme for parents/carers whose young people are either at risk of or are experiencing Child Criminal or Child Sexual Exploitation.

The themes of the sessions include:

  • What is exploitation?
  • Knives and weapons
  • Substances
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Adolescent to parent violence
  • Strengthening relationships
  • Social media and online presence.

Following the programme, parents/carers continue to meet on a monthly basis. At these support groups parents are able to request further information on topics they feel are relevant for example, education or the youth justice service.

The next group started on Wednesday 16 August, running on a weekly basis between 6pm and 8pm, taking place at the Youth Justice Service in Hampden Park.

Any parent can attend monthly support groups:

  • Hastings  – Hollington Youth Centre: Monday 31 July, 10am – 12 midday
  • Eastbourne  – The Archery: Wednesday 2 August, 6pm-8pm

Parents do not need to have attended the education course to attend a support group.
