Where we work

Ivison Trust is a leading specialist charity that brings the parent perspective to tackling child exploitation. Our expertise comes from years of experience of working with parents, which is reflected in our training courses and in our approach to multi-agency working.

National parent support for child sexual and child criminal exploitation

We provide support to parents through our National Parent Support Service. A parent can phone and speak in confidence to a Support Worker for one-off or ongoing support and advice from anywhere across England and Wales.


We have a number of commissioned partnerships to provide Parent Liaison Officers (PLOs). The Parent Liaison Officers are co-located in multi agency settings in local authority areas to support parents affected by child exploitation and promote best practice in the work of professionals to safeguard children.
