A Leyland-based organisation that works to prevent children becoming victims of exploitation and abuse is celebrating its fourth birthday with a special event.

No Whispers Community Interest Company offers training to inform, educate, and empower adults, professionals, and volunteers about child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation.

Director Karen Livesey – who is a finalist in the Lancashire Life and Cheshire Life Inspirational Women Awards – said: “Child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation are forms of abuse and both present serious growing issues in the UK and across the world.

“These forms of abuse can have lasting and profound impact on the lives of children and young people and can lead to serious consequences such as trauma, drug addiction, mental health problems, relationship difficulties, criminal involvement and sometimes fatalities.”
