Use of simulation is invaluable for use with young people. Simulation is certainly the way forward.

'I think it works really well as a trainer/discussion tool… I just think it is very useful, easy to enter the world of the child… It will work well as a tool for both discussion and training for staff… Overall, I was impressed with the material, concept and presentation. It is an excellent tool that will benefit my staff.'

'The over-riding learning point for me during this activity was the ability to be able to reflect during the visit and stop and pause…..I never have the opportunity to do within practice when on a home visit. I thought Andrew’s use of empathy was really powerful when the family were becoming hostile… which you don’t get to do to that extent in practice or while doing a role play.'

'The programme is creative and social media based which works well with our client group, and can be worked through at varied paces. “Looking out for Lottie” has provided a great platform for raising CSE awareness in an innovative way.


In a recent trial of the product in an FE setting, 27 out of 39 young people said the simulation had increased their knowledge of radicalisation and would alter their online behaviour.

'Inter-professional learning of this quality on child protection is long overdue.'
