Plea to join child exploitation pledge in Norwich 

A plea to support National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day on Wednesday March 18 has been issued by the Christian-based Magdalen Group, with a mass pledge planned for Norwich Market at 12 noon.

The Lord Mayor of Norwich, PCC Stephen Betts, Cllr Arthur, Cllr Harris, the Magdalene Group CEO Suzi Heybourne and trustees, Norwich Market stallholders and the general public will come out en masse in support of the awareness day
They will be writing a pledge on their hands as Norfolk's voice against child sexual exploitation at 12 noon at the marketplace on Gentleman’s Walk in Norwich city centre.
Lynda O'Keeffe, from the Magdalen Group said: “We will be raising awareness of CSE in Norfolk by distributing leaflets and members of our young people's team will be available throughout the day to inform and discuss ways that everyone can be educated in the prevention of child sexual exploitation in Norfolk.”
Throughout the day the Rose Project (part of the Magdalene Group) will have a presence with a stall on Haymarket, opposite Primark from 9am to 4pm.
The Rose Project has a dedicated team offering expertise and frontline services to ‘at risk’ young people and support for victims. Services include runaway support, befriending, targeted support and a free Helpline and Live Chat facility.
All are welcome to join in the activities on the day
