Children’s Society: Seriously Awkward Campaign

Over 20 MPs spoke to expert practitioners from The Children’s Society about protecting 16 and 17 year olds from exploitation at their recent parliamentary event.

Nearly a thousand campaigners contacted MPs about the event, creating crucial momentum for the next stage of the Policing and Crime Bill. Thank you.

Amendments to the Policing and Crime Bill were also discussed by the Bill Committee.

Karen Bradley, the Minister for Preventing Abuse, Exploitation and Crime, has arranged meetings with MPs who supported the amendments. With the vote on the Bill just around the corner, The Children’s Society will be in touch again for a final push.

In the meantime, please watch our video to find out what we’re calling on the Government to change.
