Ivison Trust

Ivison Trust (formerly Parents Against Child Exploitation PACE) is a national charity working to keep children safe from exploitation by supporting their parents, disrupting the offenders and working in partnership with police and family services. They also train professionals to support affected children and their parents using a trauma-informed, family-centric approach.

Support for child exploitation

Ivison have parent support workers who provide independent, non-judgmental and confidential support, which fully recognises your rights as a parent and your decisions on how to reduce the risk of harm to your child.

We can talk through your immediate concerns, help you to assess the level of danger your child is in, and signpost you to agencies in your area who may be able to give you local support.

We can also equip you with information for notifying police and social care, and provide practical tips for logging information and gathering evidence. We will never blame you for what is happening to your child and aim to help you find the best solution for your family.
