Theatre performance to raise awareness of CSE

"Somebody's Sister, Somebody's Daughter" is a play which aims to raise awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation amongst young people. It will be performed at the Keighley Young Peoples Centre on Parkwood Street, Keighley BD21 4QH, from 6.30pm to 8pm on Thursday 8 May 2014.

 

The story is about 15 year-old Chloe, a girl from an ordinary family with caring parents who gets mixed up with 30 year-old Adeem who plans to use and exploit her.  The story is not sexually graphic but it is shocking.  The play is designed to raise awareness of CSE and the warning signs that will prevent young people from getting drawn in to it.

 

After the performance the actors will return to stage in character for a "hot-seating" session, a chance for young people to quiz them.

 

Following this, a short talk is given which outlines the following;

 

                ' There is this myth that only certain types of young people would be vulnerable, but in fact it

                can be children from perfectly happy homes. The people who do this are very clever and devious.

                 By the time young people realise they are in this situation, they feel its too late to get out"

 

We aim to target as many young people in particular from the 14+ age groups and professionals from accross the Keighley constituency not to miss this event in order to make them aware of the grooming and sexual exploitation of young people.

 

The event has been funded by Bradford Childrens Safeguarding Board and this new play will be touring schools accross the Bradford District from September 2014.
