Messages from young people – in their own words

Seen and Heard captures the views of young people about what it’s like when you’ve ‘got something to tell.’ You’ll hear what young people need, and what they want from professionals in order to help them feel like they can disclose abuse. By participating, and building your own awareness, you'll help to ensure opportunities to end abuse aren't missed….

Thanks for visiting the Seen and Heard website. In the last few years loads of reports have said that there were times when young people who were being abused wanted to talk about what was going on, but no-one really noticed them. When they did try to speak about what was going on, there was too many times when no-one heard them. 

Seen and Heard wants to help over 750,000 health care workers to understand what it feels like to be a young person with ‘something to tell’, especially if they are being sexually abused or exploited. 

You'll find out about what loads of different young people have said those health care workers need to do to make sure that young people are seen and heard when they visit a health or care setting.

There's an e-learning training course on this website. It’s free, interactive and lasts for about one hour and it features a drama about a boy called Tyler. Or if you’ve already done the training you can become a Seen and Heard Champion and help us get as many people as possible to do this training. 

Everything that you need is right here on the Seen and Heard website so thanks for visiting. We hope you complete the training so you can help all young people be seen and heard. With your support, we can stop the abuse.
