Safeguarding Information on PACE


A rare form of sexual, emotional and physical abuse of a child/ren is Child Sexual Exploitation. If it does occur, it is a hugely upsetting time. Knowing the signs and being aware of the support available can help to prepare parents and carers with the knowledge and tools to act.

PACE is a charity that helps parents across the UK understand what is happening to their child and how parents are the prime agents in helping their child exit exploitative relationships. It does this by offering:

  • One-to-one telephone advice and support to parents
  • Facilitating meetings with similarly-affected parents for peer support
  • Advising how to establish rights as parents and work in partnership with statutory agents such as police and social workers
  • Advice and support when pursuing┬ádisruption and prosecution of the perpetrators of child sexual exploitation
  • Befriending scheme
