Looking for volunteers

We are looking to recruit a group of young volunteers to take part in a
photo-shoot for the new Safe and Sound website.

The photo-shoot will enable us to produce a range of images suitable for our new website which is due to launch in early April 2015 and will also be used across our promotional materials.

About Safe and Sound

Safe and Sound, based in Derby, is a charity that works to protect children and young people from sexual exploitation. With over thirteen years’ experience, we have built a strong reputation as a key provider in the bid to end child sexual exploitation and have become a leading organisation working in the field, trusted by victims of sexual exploitation, their families, carers and professional agencies alike.

We provide support directly to children, young people and families affected by the abuse and work to raise awareness of the issue to ensure that individuals affected receive the support they need to move forwards in their lives.

We are committed to raising awareness of the issue within schools and community groups and firmly believe in early intervention in these environments to prevent young people becoming victims of child sexual exploitation in the first place. We work at a national level to support the development of national policy and response to the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children and young people.

web-1221What we’re looking for

Due to the sensitive nature of the charity and the subject matter, all participants must be over 18. We would ideally like to recruit volunteers between ages 18-21. The photo-shoot will have art direction from a professional photographer who will direct people on where and how to position themselves with a full briefing beforehand. Images will be taken of young people in natural settings at various locations around the University of Derby campus.

Please note: the photographs will not include anything that would make anyone feel uncomfortable, they will be photographs of groups in discussion and individual portrait shots.


The photo-shoot will take place on Friday 27th February from 9.30am until approx 5.30pm at the University of Derby, Kedleston Road campus. Lunch will be provided.

Please only respond if you are available on Friday 27th February. If you are only able to participate for a short period of time, please let us know.

How to respond

If you are interested in volunteering to be a participant in the photoshoot, please email to express your interest with a photo and daytime contact number to by Monday 23rd February 2015 at 1pm. All selected volunteers will be contacted on Tuesday 24th February.

*We advise that all participants in the photo-shoot are agreeing to feature on materials associated with tackling child sexual exploitation. Please do not respond if you are not comfortable with this. Participants will be required to sign image release forms agreeing to their photographs being used for this purpose.
