What makes us the UK's leading male only sexual exploitation project?
Since 2002 we have provided thousands of boys and young men with support and information on male grooming and sexual exploitation.
We have developed nationally and now provide boys and young men across the country with information and support via our national helpline and online drop-in.
According to the National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People we are the only sexual exploitation project in the UK supporting ONLY boys and young men who have been, are being, or are at risk of being sexually exploited.
Our specialist work has been acknowledged in the local and national press/media on numerous occasions and it was also acknowledged in the Department for Education's Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation Action Plan Progress Report (2012) on pages 3, 6 and 9.
The BLAST Project is regularly invited to represent boys and young men at local and national conferences, forums and subgroups, including being invited to feed into policy development with the Department for Education.
The BLAST Project has received funding from the Department for Education which will see the BLAST Project recruit two full time national development workers who will work with existing sexual exploitation services to build their capacity to work with boys and young men, and ensure that their services are accessible to and inclusive of boys and young men.
The BLAST Project has created the THINK AGAIN DVD and resource pack which contains three short films and various activities which highlight the grooming and sexual exploitation of boys and young men. The resource is being sold to professionals nationally and is proving to be very popular.
The BLAST Project runs the only national helpline and online drop-in service for boys and young men across the country to access support and information.
