Talks puts spotlight on grooming issue
The issue of sexual grooming comes under the spotlight at a talk at Sunderland University this evening.
Bhai Mohan Singh, of the Sikh Awareness Society, will speak at the Prospect Building, in Charles Street, from 6pm.
The organisation is aiming to set up courses throughout every major city in the UK, open to all communities, to help combat the problem.
“There has recently been a major problem in Newcastle with the grooming of young girls and we feel the need to address this problem head on by giving advice on how to tackle this terrible and unfortunate situation,” said Mr Singh.
The Sikh Awareness Society was established in 1998 amid growing concerns about grooming and originally operated in the West Midlands Sikh community before expanding its services and going nationwide.
