Southwark Council, and it's partners organised through the Southwark Safeguarding Children's Board, is starting a new piece of work to raise public awareness of the risks associated with children being sexually exploited. We need your responses to this survey; and the responses of as many people as possible who are living, studying, working or visiting Southwark, about child sexual exploitation.

Why your views matter

We want to know how much you know and understand about child sexual exploitation so the work we do on raising awareness is properly targeted and more effective.  We want to find out where to target our campaign, to whom, and what people still need to know.

We are doing this survey in the first part of 2017 and we will repeat it in a years time. In between there will be a campaign to increase public awareness of the dangers, risks and harm associated with child sexual exploitation. In a years time we can measure our success and find out what more we must do to make Southwark a safer place for children.


What happens next

We are expecting a lot of responses because so many people care about the safety and wellbeing of children. We are also asking people we meet off-line to fill in a paper version of this survey. All of the surveys will take a little while to analyse. Once we have done the analysis we will post the results on the council's website, and we will email the results to those people who have given us their email addresses. The important thing to remember is that things will change and work will be done differently because of your answers.
