The NWG Network: Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation (NWG) are currently looking for expressions of interest from young people to form a Youth Advisory Panel.

The Youth Advisory Panel will:

  • be made up of 8 - 10 young people
  • involve young people aged between 16-21 years old
  • involve young people living across the UK
  • meet 4 times a year
  • directly feed into the work of the NWG Network
  • be called or emailed for advice and feedback outside of the forum.
  • have the opportunity to influence the issues that they want to address.
  • giving a young person's perspective on the work of the NWG Network
  • ensuring young people are involved in the NWG Network's internal governance
  • encouraging other young people to learn about the issues around CSE.

All young people involved will be required to have access to a project/key worker, counsellor or other industry professional to ensure they have emotional support around any issues that may be raised in the forum.
