Engage ME delivers a community outreach and education programme committed to raising awareness of child abuse and promoting child protection practices within minority ethnic communities across the UK.

The programme works with minority ethnic children and young people aged 6 to 16, their parents/carers and staff in group settings that children and young people attend,  to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence to help them keep healthy and safe from harm and improve the practise of organisations.

Utilising a culturally and faith sensitive approach, the programme focuses on six key objectives:

  • Supporting groups working with children and young people to adopt best practice related to safeguarding 
  • Increasing awareness and understanding of abuse in all its forms and the ability to recognise signs of abuse
  • Increasing awareness and understanding of children’s rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
  • Increasing awareness of measures that can be taken to prevent abuse
  • Empowering minority ethnic children and families to disclose abuse
  • Increasing awareness of relevant support services

To facilitate expanding the reach of the programme beyond the delivery capacity of our staff team and ensure its availability to children, young people and organisation’s UK wide we will work with partner organisations. We can train their staff and volunteers to deliver the programme and additionally provide support, monitoring and quality assurance services.
