Sexual exploitation is child abuse. Victims are manipulated or forced into taking part in a sexual act often in return for attention, affection, money, drugs, alcohol or accommodation.
Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) can happen to any young person from any background. It happens to boys and young men as well as girls and young women.
Children and young people do not become involved voluntarily – they are forced into the situation by abusive adults or peers who present themselves as their ‘friend’ or ‘boyfriend’.
Young people may be targeted by abusers online or in person.
Children and young people that are the victims of sexual exploitation often do not recognise that they are being exploited.
However, there are a number of tell-tale signs that a child may be being groomed for sexual exploitation. These include:
Important: If you know or suspect a child is in immediate danger, you should dial 999 straight away.
