CHELSEA’S CHOICEa powerful production highlighting the issue of child sexual exploitation

 

Bedford Borough Council and the Bedford Borough Safeguarding Children Board is endorsing a theatre production company to deliver performances to Upper Schools across the borough which inform young people about grooming and helps individuals to spot the signs of sexual exploitation.

 

Raising young peoples’ awareness of child sexual exploitation is key in helping to prevent them from becoming victims of this crime. The production, delivered by AlterEgo Creative Solutions Ltd, can be targeted at the following core groups; young people aged 12 +, parents, carers, teachers and professionals working with young people, and the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

 

Cllr Sue Oliver, Executive Member for Children’s Social Care at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Bedford Borough Council takes the issue of Child Sexual Exploitation extremely seriously, particularly in the light of recent high profile cases in other parts of the country. The audience gains a better understanding of the devastating impact that sexual exploitation has on a young person's life. This is a very useful and innovative way of raising awareness of the issues relating to sexual exploitation and reaching young people, giving them some skills and knowledge to be able to protect themselves from this form of abuse."

 

Chelsea’s Choice’ is a hard-hitting, 35 minute long play which is followed by a 25 minute interactive session which provides an opportunity to explore the issues raised in the safeguarding drama.

 

AlterEgo Creative Solutions Ltd. is a not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to using theatre to inform, to educate and to entertain.
