The Presentation

Following an evening’s presentation, Peter was approached by the parent of a young man who we will call Luke (identity changed for his own protection). We learned that Luke had been targeted, groomed and forced into county lines and modern slavery. He was held captive, beaten and abused for months at a time resulting in trauma, anxiety, loss of self, loss of his family …. and loss of his identity.

On hearing Luke’s story, Serenity Welfare intervened, setting up a package of support to safeguard and help Luke in his recovery. This has been highly successful, with Luke now joining the Serenity Welfare family, so he can help other young people. Luke presents his story ‘in his own words’ at Peter’s training talks.

For anyone with concerns for their child, for professionals working in the field of exploitation - this is now a presentation you cannot afford to miss! This will provide you with all the information, knowledge and understanding you will need to safeguard and protect your children & young people who are being targeted, groomed and exploited daily – into criminal exploitation.
