…..The jump between having a series of one night stands, to becoming an escort was very easy and an attractive way to pay off my debts. I thought I was in control, but the opposite was true!…..

Did you know that the average age of trafficking victims globally is just 12! Many young people are also groomed and sexually exploited at just 12 yrs old as well. Join our social media campaign #average12 on twitter. We have developed a schools resource pack, for Year 8 girls and boys called “#average12” to raise awareness. The pack is in the form of a bag, full of interesting resources to educate and inform pupils and parents of the dangers of being groomed and sexually exploited.

Would you recognise the signs of grooming?

They told me if I didn’t do a line-up they would stab me. I didn’t have a choice. I did the line-up and they filmed it.
