Heini’s story

If Barnardo’s hadn’t come along, I’d be dead by now.

Now I feel I want more in life, to get a good job as a support worker.

This year, we helped Heini, now 19, overcome the trauma of sexual exploitation.

More sexually exploited children than ever before need us.

Our Seraf service

The Seraf service is the only specialist service that works across Wales to combat sexual exploitation of children and young people.

The service works on a one-to-one basis and within group settings, including schools and community groups, to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation and prevent it happening.
