Thank you for gift boxes.

These lovely gift boxes are from Sadhia, who is currently working on a project to empower vulnerable young girls in Norwich; particularly working together with New Routes Integration Charity who support families of refugees, asylum seekers and isolated migrants living in Norwich, & hoping to distribute approximately 50 gift boxes (for FREE) to include basic sanitary and hygiene products as well as educational material for the young girls. Please see summarised a short story on the JustGiving Page of the project in general: Project PowHER Period, inspired by Scotland's new policy of making sanitary products free to access.

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers has empowered workers from over cities around the world to come together and organise against discrimination and remember victims of violence.

Being social online this December: a parent’s guide

Thinkuknow from the CEOP education team : "This year, many of us will be relying on tech over the festive period for entertainment and, most importantly, to keep in touch with friends and family. Here are a few of our resources that you can share with parents, carers and children and young people to help them have a safer online experience over the winter break. Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks. Our guide for parents looks at how they can support their child to be safer online this season by focusing on 3 key areas: viewing, sharing, chatting and friending."

Presentation to UEA students

“Cat and Jess from the Rose Project team led a presentation on Thursday last week for a group of students studying Education at the University of East Anglia. We covered the signs of exploitation, including push and pull factors, and explored which young people might be more vulnerable. We also spent time explaining our roles within the organisation and how we work with the multi-agency team around the child. Despite having to deliver this virtually in light of the current circumstances, we had some brilliant questions and feedback from the students. Many of them will go on to work with children and young people, and we hope that they can take this knowledge and apply it in their future roles.” Jess Hubbard, CSE practitioner
