We’re proud to announce our latest partner of the campaign, Skye Alexandra House. One of the most vital elements of our partnerships is the opportunity to share resources, sources of support and information, and our sector partners allow us to do just that.
In their own words…
Skye Alexandra House is a bespoke organisation designed to meet the needs of vulnerable young girls/women who are at risk or victims of child sexual and criminal exploitation. The company was created out of the owners’ desire to provide solutions to the increasing problems with exploitation being experienced by many vulnerable young girls/women in London and the surrounding areas. A victim herself of childhood sexual abuse and rape, she knew the trauma that these experiences could have on your life if the right support was not in place.
Skye Alexandra House provides one to one mentoring, support groups, workshops, family support, training and residential services to local authorities, schools and metropolitan police. Through these services we are able to educate, support and encourage girls/young women.
In 2017 Skye Alexandra House produced its first educational film Repost which highlights the child sexual and criminal exploitation of young girl’s in London based on the stories of some of the young girls with which we have worked with. The film has been used as a successful training tool for professionals and in schools as a part of our prevention work with students. Repost has been widely received by all groups. Skye Alexandra house will continue to make educational material to make the required impact and change lives.
We are proud to join the UK SAYS NO MORE campaign as we believe that there is strength in numbers, the voices and people working hard to bring about change the greater the impact will be.
