Pace is a collaborative organisation which works in partnership with several statutory and voluntary agencies. We firmly believe that a multi-agency approach is key to tackling child sexual exploitation.
Pace is a leading specialist charity that brings the parent perspective to tackling child sexual exploitation. Our expertise comes from years of experience of working with parents, which is reflected in our training courses and in our approach to multi-agency working.

Our current partnerships
We have been based in Calderdale since June 2016. Along with the one-to-one support, we offer drop in groups and awareness raising sessions for parents from all communities. We work closely with the local schools to offer parents information and support around CSE. We deliver CSE awareness training within a multi-agency CSE team to children in schools. We have also supported a number of prosecutions and provided witness care support.
We have been based within the Blackburn with Darwen Engage team since 2009, expanding to the East Lancashire footprint of the Engage team including Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale in 2011. We support the training and induction of police and social care staff within the Lancashire footprint and deliver community awareness. We have supported a number of successful prosecutions whilst in post, utilising the Parent Liaison Officer witness care packages.
We have been based in the co-located team Sunrise since 2012. Alongside the one-to-one work we offer awareness raising sessions across the Borough. We work closely with the local primary and secondary schools to offer parents access to information around CSE and support from an early intervention perspective.
We have had a Parent Liaison Officer in North Yorkshire since December 2016. We have great partnerships with statutory and other charities working in the areas and utilise these relationships to achieve better outcomes for children and families at risk of or experiencing CSE.
