Communications News: Little voice

More than 7,000 postcards designed by young people abused as a result of prostitution are being used to urge the Government to tackle child sexual exploitation in the UK. The Children's Society has linked with the Ecpat coalition (End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking) to campaign for new laws to treat people trapped in prostitution as victims of abuse rather than as criminals. The cards have been sent to specialist prostitution projects, which will help to collate the responses and send them to the Home Office before its consultation on prostitution laws, Paying the Price, ends on 26 November. "This campaign is about empowering young people to speak out and tell the Government what they need," said Kate Farley, the society's project leader. "We're talking about the victims of a ruthless trade in drugs, violence and exploitation, who want to get out of prostitution, but need support to do so."
