BUSINESSES

Whatever business you’re in, everyone has a responsibility to help protect children from child sexual exploitation.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE YOU:

INFORMATION FOR THE HOTEL INDUSTRY

Child sexual exploitation could be happening where you work. It is child abuse and a crime.  It can happen in all communities and in many different places, including your hotel.

By law premises licence holders and supervisors have to make sure that children are protected from physical, psychological and moral harm at their premises.

 

Unfortunately, perpetrators aren’t always easy to spot.  But, you can help by being vigilant and knowing what to look out for:

 

  • A lot of male visitors to one room
  • Young girls and boys with older men
  • Parties in rooms
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Guests insisting on paying cash
  • A lot of condom wrappers in the bin
  • Teenage girls loitering in the lobby area or hallways
  • Guests refusing to provide ID
  • Guests insisting on paying by cash
  • Young boys or girls looking scared, withdrawn or under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Guests who appear to be secretive about their stay or who try to conceal their activities in their room

IF YOU SEEM SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS OR THINK IT’S HAPPENING IN YOUR HOTEL, SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER AND CALL WEST MIDLANDS POLICE ON 101

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF RESOURCES, INCLUDING POSTERS AND LEAFLETS SPECIFICALLY FOR THE HOTEL INDUSTRY, ALONG WITH CHECKLISTS FOR RECEPTION AND HOUSEKEEPING STAFF AND STAFF INDUCTION TRAINING.

TAXI INDUSTRY: WE NEED YOUR EYES AND EARS

As a business you may notice strange behaviour involving children.  You may see young people or groups of men being dropped off at different locations.  It may be nothing, but it might be something.  If you are worried, it is important that you don’t keep any concerns to yourself.

For more information or support please contact your licensing authority or REPORT IT!
