An online toolkit to help school staff develop their understanding of exploitation and how best to respond.

We strive to provide the most current information, materials and resources for you and as a result, this website will be updated on a regular basis. To enable you to view any updates, please refresh this site at the start of each use.

About the Toolkit

Created by The Children’s Society’s Disrupting Exploitation Programme, this site hosts an educational toolkit.

The toolkits have been informed by school staff, schools-based work with young people, wider community practitioner feedback, and our extensive experience of supporting children who are victims of exploitation and their families.

The toolkits serve two purposes. They provide opportunities for children and young people to learn about exploitation and be confident in recognising and responding to signs and indicators of this, and they are also designed to help reduce school exclusions for young people who are at risk – school exclusions can increase the chances that a young person will be exploited.

These materials are free to use. Please read our terms and conditions before beginning.

We want our resources to have a continued positive impact for young people and ongoing evaluation is an important part of this. This site contains interactive features that allow schools and young people to provide feedback about the sessions and we would really welcome your insight. You can play a vital role in helping us learn how these resources work in practice and how they might contribute to our collective journey to end child exploitation.

We may also host focus groups to learn from your experiences. Please sign up here to take part.
