Latimer and Camden are Supporting #1

Latimer will be hosting a free public event to raise awareness of sexual violence and exploitation against young people. There will be a screening of a short film on Camden’s services for young victims, developed with young people from the borough and coordinated by Camden’s Youth Services.

The screening will be held at the Roundhouse, Camden on 22nd November at 4:30pm and is open to all. Aisha Aladermerin, Camden’s Young People’s Advocate for Sexual Violence and Exploitation, and the actors from the film will be at the screening.

Two charities, who work to promote healthy relationships based on equality and respect and provide support for under 25s, Tender and Brook, will be holding workshops and providing information. There will be spoken word performances from Thea Gajic, Dominic Coates and Nicky William, as well as a feedback wall for audience members to share their thoughts on the film throughout the evening.

The film explores the experiences of four young people and how Ur Life’s services helped them to overcome and remove themselves from situations of sexual violence or sexual exploitation. Ur Life (www.urlife.org.uk) is a website set up by Camden Council for young people in Camden to get help and advice on a variety of issues, including drugs, alcohol, emotional health and relationships. It also lists services in the local area that provides support for young people facing any of the issues discussed in the film.
