The BLAST Project

The BLAST Project is the UK’s leading male only sexual exploitation service supporting and working solely with boys and young men who have experienced, are experiencing or are at risk of experiencing child sexual exploitation (CSE).

It provides services locally across Leeds and Bradford with other services available nationally and it has provided support and information to thousands of boys and young men since 2002.

BLAST has produced a range of resources that can be used with boys and young men and resources aimed at professionals who need to recognise and be aware of the risk of sexual exploitation of males. Click here to access a wide range of resources via the BLAST website or YouTube. 

BLAST recently launched a powerful video and associated resources for use in primary schools. This is entitled “Alright Charlie”. You can view the video by following this link to the BLAST resources section.

CSE Films and Briefing Papers

The University of Bedfordshire has been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for The International Centre's pioneering research into child sexual exploitation. BSCB is grateful to the International Centre for permitting us to link to these films and briefing papers. The International Centre is sharing the findings of a range of its studies as well as drawing on other academic and policy literature about CSE.

Most of the films are under two minutes long. They can be watched in the office, shared with colleagues or friends, or used in a training context. Each film is accompanied by a short briefing document that outlines the evidence in more detail, with references and links to the original research and questions for reflection.

The films are listed in the table below - links to each film, and the supporting documents, follow beneath:
