Tell Someone You Trust
This Animated Video informs 9 to 13 year olds about sexual violence in the circle of trust and how to speak out against it. It was made to mark the first Council of Europe Day to Protect Children from Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse and was launched on 18 November. The video is a part of a series of initiatives that the Council of Europe and its 47 member states as well as international organisations are undertaking.
If you have been affected by this video, call our Care Line on 0818 924 567
