The West Midlands Violence Reduction Unit (WM VRU) has created a communications pack for #WMExploitationWeek. Co-ordinated by the WM VRU, Exploitation Awareness Week (15th – 21st March) is a regional campaign coinciding with National Exploitation Awareness Day on 18th March.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of all forms of exploitation, how to spot signs of abuse, and to direct people to support resources and systems.
The communications pack includes:
- VRU #WMExploitationWeek Comms Plan: The social media plan for the WM VRU. The images referenced in the plan can be found in the folder titled 'Visual Materials for VRU Comms plan'.
- Other Campaign Materials: This folder includes the #EyesOpen campaign materials and materials from the #LookCloser campaign. Please share these materials throughout the week.
Please use the link below to access the communications pack which you are free to use to inform your own communications. (Please use Google Chrome to open this)
I encourage you to share this amongst your organisation and wider network to ensure as a region, we are doing as much as we can to raise awareness of exploitation in order to help safeguard our children and young people. Please also connect with the WM VRU on our social media channels (@WestMidsVRU on Facebook and Twitter) and re-share the content we put our during #WMExploitationWeek (15th – 21st March).
Also give the WST Training Page a visit as there are a number of training sessions taking place next week!
