Could you help us create media that helps protect against grooming and exploitation?

NIOC Creates is the way that Not In Our Community works with young people to coproduce media and messages that are authentic and effective. We have two main ways of working:

NIOC Creates Community

By opting in as a member of the Creates Community you will be the first to hear about opportunities to act or crew upcoming films, critique script drafts, photoshoots, review film previews and be consulted on new ideas and opportunities.

Through the Creates Community you can also submit to provide scripts, ideas, music, photography, artwork, and any skills you have that can help protect against grooming and exploitation.

Our call outs are a mixture of volunteer and paid opportunities.


Referred working is a bespoke process for working with young people who have vulnerabilities and/or have experience forms of grooming and exploitations.

Referrals can be made by VCS and public service teams to enable a young person to take part in a positive experience through which they can help create an authentic and effective message to the benefit of young people throughout the Humber area.

If exploratory discussions suggest that this would be beneficial experience, NIOC’s Campaign Director will work with the young person, or group, and support worker to help create a message around their thoughts and experiences to help prevent harm to others, the output will depend on ongoing projects and the nature of the experience, for example, we could write for a photo story, video, blog, etc.
