The West Midlands Violence Reduction Unit (WM VRU) have created a communications pack for #WMExploitationWeek.

Co-ordinated by the WM VRU, Exploitation Awareness Week (15th – 21st March) is a regional campaign coinciding with National Exploitation Awareness Day on 18th March.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of all forms of exploitation, how to spot signs of abuse, and to direct people to support resources and systems.

The communications pack includes:

  • VRU #WMExploitationWeek Comms Plan: The social media plan for the WM VRU. The images referenced in the plan can be found in the folder titled 'Visual Materials for VRU Comms plan'.
  • Other Campaign Materials: This folder includes the #EyesOpen campaign materials and materials from the #LookCloser campaign. Please share these materials throughout the week.
