Warriors and Pennell support Get Safe campaign

Warriors and former England full-back Chris Pennell is supporting Worcestershire’s Get Safe campaign.

Pennell, Warriors’ longest-serving player,  appears in a film that has been produced to raise awareness of the campaign.

Get Safe is the partnership title for the identification and management of multi-agency support and protection for children and young people at risk of Gang-related activity, Sexual Exploitation, Trafficking, Modern day Slavery, Absent and Missing, Forced Marriage, Honour Based Violence and Female Genital Mutilation, and Criminal Exploitation.

“At Warriors we are supporting the Get Safe campaign to help get the message out that it is not OK to feel pressured, forced or scared into having sexual relationships, to hide drugs and money or to harm someone else,” Pennell said.

“It’s not cool to be part of a gang that exploits young people.

“Kids, if someone is making you do something like this in person or on social media, understand me when I say it is wrong.

“Call 101 to speak to someone who will help you. Or if you feel you are in danger call the police on 999.

“Child exploitation is wrong. Let’s help get the message out there that it is not OK to exploit children. Stay safe.”
