The work we do


For those who do not know our Network, welcome! We are warm and approachable, we are open, and we are willing to share our journeys. This website will give you the opportunity to get to know us and our work and attending any of our events will allows us to get to know you personally.

Our network of professionals continues to grow rapidly as more endeavour to improve services, with over 550 organisations now sharing their knowledge and practice with others, sharing the information from the network through over 10,000 dissemination points in those organisations through their own networks means the network covers thousands of professionals who share the same goals, aiming to ‘get it right’ for victims. 

For those who are already members, together we have created spaces and opportunities to share what we have learned and will learn together.

It’s challenging work and we have learnt that networking professionals together is one of the answers to enable us all to improve our responses, what does and doesn’t work well and to access support in difficult times. Remember this is your network and the more you add to it the more you all increase the value of the support all our members get.

The National Child Exploitation Awareness Day

On the 18th March we champion the National Child Exploitation Awareness Day. It aims to highlight the issues surrounding CSE and wider exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children.

NWG are committed to the fight against Child Exploitation and supporting victims and their families who are subjected to child exploitation. But they cannot succeed without the support of people like you.

Together, we can work to inform, educate and prevent this form of child sexual abuse, wider exploitation and Modern Slavery within the UK.

We believe that if we can make more people aware, not only through our National CE Awareness Day, but all year round through our campaign, that we can improve the chances of young people being heard. 

Join us, and help us to raise awareness of CE. 

Please Donate to The NWG Network

It costs approximately £320,000 per annum to keep our service running. By making a donation today, you can fund our work to train and advise organisations that support so many victims of CSE.
