I-RAP (International, Intervention, Rehabilitation & Protection) is a charitable organisation working to become a charity to protect vulnerable children in third world countries. It was started by the director of a domestic abuse charity (Staying Put) after she watched a documentary highlighting the horrific abuse children are suffering in third world countries. Unfortunately this continues to grow at a rapid rate with little support shown to protect these children.
She has already dedicated her life's work to protecting vulnerable women and now she is working to protect vulnerable children and it is why I want to offer my support as I believe in the work she does. 100% of all proceedings towards this cause will be given to I-RAP.
A little insight into the future goals of I-RAP:
CSE is a complex problem that requires a creative and comprehensive solution.
I-RAP will work with survivor, communities, voluntary and statutory agencies in West Yorkshire to understand and identify solutions and stop silencing of victims, both during the crime and its personal legacies.
The impact of child sexual exploitation on the young people affected and the community cannot be underestimated.
We aim to support the wider community to understand their role in protecting children and young people from harm.
•Communities are engaged in intelligence gathering and ‘problem profiling’ activity to inform local needs analysis.
•The potential for previous trauma, including early harm within the family, to have occurred for CSE victims is recognised and explored – but not assumed – by practitioners.
•Families are supported to engage with CSE work for their child and are, wherever possible and appropriate, treated as key players in the team around the child.
•Positive relationships between young people at risk of / experiencing CSE and their families are actively promoted by the professionals working with them, wherever possible and appropriate
