 Quotes from teenagers about Sick Party:

“I thought it was really good, it tells the story better than other DVDs.”

AB, 7/3/13

“I really enjoyed the film, a lot of young people could relate. This has made me more aware of grooming stages, how to look out for someone if they are in the situation and overall how to prevent myself and friends getting groomed.”

NP, 7/3/13

“The film relates to a lot of young teenagers all around and it helps you to realise how people can be groomed in many ways and what to look out for if it does happen.”

CP, 7/3/13

“It was good that DVD, it shows you what happens – don’t always listen to your friends, you should do what you think is right.”

KC, 27/6/13

“It shows you what people do out there, it shows a lot.”

BW, 17/7/13

“It’s good because it shows people the warning signs and what to recognise.”

KN, 29/7/13

At a recent conference I attended they showed us the ‘Sick Party’ DVD. At the start of it we were given the option to leave the room if we became uncomfortable with what we were watching, I thought ‘Oh it cant be that bad’, but as I watched the storyline unfold, I became increasingly uncomfortable with what I was seeing. There were a couple of young people that we are currently working with going through my head…I was thinking ‘this is most likely what is happening to them’!. I felt like leaving the room before the end of the DVD, so that I could go to try and help them. This is a ‘MUST HAVE’ DVD for any young people you work with that may be at risk of Child Sexual Exploitation. I believe that by showing the young people and if appropriate their parents this DVD, a huge difference could be made to their lives. Kerry Jones, Wrexham County Borough Council
