Child sexual exploitation

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that affects thousands of children and young people every year in the UK, when young people under 18 receive ‘something’ (food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) in exchange for performing, and/or others performing on them, sexual activities.

If you or a young person you care about is in immediate danger, dial 999.
