Street grooming

caase photoAmidst the concern of many of us about organised street grooming and the sexual exploitation of vulnerable children and young adults, a new coalition has been launched.

The Community Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation brings together religious and human rights groups, including the Muslim Council of Britain, Church of England, City Sikhs Network and the Christian Muslim Forum and is led by the Islamic Society of Britain and HOPE not hate. 

CAASE believes that local and national grassroots and faith organisations are often best-placed to reach out into the communities most beset by this problem. 

Working across child protection services, with local authorities, schools, faith communities and the police, CAASE will develop a proactive response to the growing problem of on-street grooming, raising awareness, educating and developing community-led responses.”

There is more information on the London Peace Network website, but please contact CAASE to see how your religious group or faith forum can support this important work.
