This is updated on a regular basis and soon to be available locally to local schools, GPs and community groups.

Awareness Raising Sessions:
- Mindseye – A Gang awareness session by Simeon Moore – 12th October 11am-12noon
Preventing Child Criminal Exploitation is a key target for Sutton Coldfield Early Help Partnership and with that in mind we introduce a series of sessions highlighting the dangers of gang culture.
On 12th October Simeon Moore will be delivering a Gang Awareness session as an introduction to our Primary School workshops which will be taking place in Sutton Coldfield Schools during the Autumn Term.
Simeon is a writer, musician and advocate for young people. He was a member of a notorious Birmingham gang and now works to tackle what he sees as the glamorisation of gang culture, which gives young people aspirations to live negatively. Simeon will be sharing his lived experience, discussing how he was able to turn his life around by learning to consciously choose a better way to think based on how he wanted his life to be.
- Child Sexual Exploitation; A Lived Expereince by Beth Thomas – 23rd November 10am-11am
Further details to follow.
Please note that all sessions have a maximum number of attendees to encourage an interactive learning environment. Book early to secure places.
