This opinion piece was written for Terre des Hommes' Newsletter and Website by Claire Cody, the Research Fellow coordinating the 'Our Voices' project.

The article explores how children and young people affected by sexual exploitation are being silenced and ignored in the UK and across Europe.

The piece explores why young people are often not involved in efforts to prevent sexual violence and why young people should be enabled to get more involved. The article refers to the 'Our Voices' project as one example of a project trying to change perceptions and practice.
