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.
