Spotting the Signs this Summer 2017

The summer months are a time where children and young people spend long days outdoors, with friends and family, enjoying the sun and time off school, college and work. This also means however, that grooming can be more prevalent as more are exposed to the dangers of gangs. We are asking residents to be vigilant this summer, spot the signs of potential abuse and report suspicious signals or behaviour whenever you feel someone is in possible danger.

Signs can include mental health problems, cuts and bruises, unexplained gifts, alcohol or drug addiction, regular offending, absence from school/home, repeating sexually transmitted infections (STIs), self-harming and suicidal tendencies.

If you spot the signs this summer, take action, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
