Code: BH/22/0373 BHSCP - Preventing the Exploitation of Children and Young People (Day1)

Ensuring that children and young people in Brighton & Hove are protected effectively from sexual harm and violent exploitation is a priority for Brighton & Hove LSCB.

Day One of our two training courses on exploitation looks at different ways that children & young people may be exploited by those who have power over them by virtue of their age, gender, intellect, physical strength and/or economic or other resources. Violence, coercion and intimidation commonly occur in exploitation, and these situations are often characterised by the child or young person’s limited availability of choice resulting from their social/economic and/or emotional vulnerability

This course is facilitated by The Wise Project, and there will be a strong focus on Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), how to identify this abuse, and disrupt the exploitation. You will also look at the emerging threat of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) and County Lines activity, as well as considering what may make a young person vulnerable to exploitation into radicalisation. These  different forms of exploitation can be linked, and you will be encouraged to think about the wider experiences of the child, including the nuances behind a vulnerable children being both potential  perpetrators of crimes and victims of exploitation.

This training is provided by the Local Children's Safeguarding Board (LSCB)

Manager Network: 17th May, 10:00-12:00:  IDAHOBiT - the international day against homo, bi and transphobia. 

Examining our evidence and learning how to create better experiences for Bisexual staff at B&HCC.

IDAHOBiT was created in 2004 to draw attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.

The date of 17 May was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organisation’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.

IDAHOBiT on 17 May is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. Thousands of initiatives, big and small, are reported throughout the planet across the world. B&HCC will be holding a special session of the Managers Network with the aim raising awareness of the experiences of our bisexual colleagues  and of Bi and poly communities across the city.

Hosted & curated by your peers, with guest speaker Marcus Morgan. 


The Manager Network meetings are online sessions, lasting up to 120 minutes; introduced and facilitated by your management peers. Each standalone session covers a different topic relevant to managers to help you develop and offer a chance to get together, albeit virtually.

It's a great chance to get away from emails and day to day work to reflect on your own management practice.

All managers (and aspiring managers) are welcome, and you don’t need to have attended any of the previous sessions to be able to come to this one.
