HORNETS LAUNCH WEEK OF ACTION WITH GMP
Its not okay....
This Sunday when Hornets take on Bradford Bulls, Officers from Greater Manchester Police will be at The Crown Oil Arena to Launch a week of campaigning in an effort to raise awareness, and to end Child Sexual Exploitation.
Hornets are standing alongside police, charities and local authorities to launch the "its not okay" campaign to send a clear message out to communities that child sexual exploitation has no place within sport.
Greater Manchester is a fantastic place for sport and we want to celebrate this while ensuring it is a safe space for children and young people. There will be activity taking place throughout Greater Manchester this week to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation with those that play, watch or coach sport. At the game officers will be on hand to speak with fans and distribute some promotional material.
Hornets community Coaches Mike Ratu and Jay Lobwein will also be working alongside GMP when they visit Rochdale based schools next week to run sports sessions and advise pupils on how to look out for signs of sexual exploitation, and how to report it.
