Understanding relationships programme

Sexual Abuse - child sexual abuse happens when an adult, adolescent or child uses their power or authority to involve a child in sexual activity. This course supports foster parents to understand the short and long-term effects of abuse, helping foster parents to understand and respond to behaviours.

Child Sexual Exploitation - is a type of sexual abuse, when a child or young person is exploited. They're given things, like gifts, drugs, money, status and affection in exchange for performing sexual activities. CSE training educates foster parents about the nature and risks of child sexual exploitation and other forms of related harm (both online and offline).

Talking to children and young people about relationships - talking about relationships with your child or young person is one of the more challenging aspects of parenting. This course explores ways to do this successfully, highlighting the importance for young people having a good understanding of consent and tackling tricky social and moral issues.
