We work directly with young people and their families delivering face to face intervention using a trauma-informed and contextual safeguarding approach to tackle all forms of exploitation and reduce the risk of harm.
Our leadership team have developed intervention based upon extensive professional experience having worked in mainstream schools, SEBD school, children's services and as senior leaders in a local authority PRU. Supporting the work is a wider team of specialist youth workers and volunteers, including ex-offenders, who share their personal experiences to support young people and families in developing their understanding of exploitation.
Our fun and interactive early intervention workshops have been developed to support key stage 2 pupils in developing their understanding of the impacts and consequences of risk-taking behaviours.
All activities are underpinned by restorative practices to help pupils reflect upon the skills needed to stay healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, and to make a positive contribution to their school and community. Our workshops have been carefully developed to ensure they are age-appropriate and also support schools in providing a high-quality PSHE and Citizenship curriculum to promote personal, social and emotional development.
Our workshops cover a wide range of topics including school exclusions, exploitation, joint enterprise and much more; we tailor each workshop to meet the individual needs of the school.
Our secondary school workshops raise awareness of the important issues that affect our wider society and provide students with an opportunity to gain knowledge and develop their understanding of the role they play in creating safer communities.

Our staff training sessions have been developed to upskill professionals by developing their understanding of exploitation and promote early identification to reduce the risk of harm to young people.
Our exploitation training is for anybody working with children and young people. Real-life accounts and guest speakers provide attendees with an opportunity to learn first-hand about the impacts of exploitation.
"As always Queensberry didn’t fail to deliver a fabulous session and you could hear a pin drop, those who attended were so captured!" Pastoral Support Manager
