Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
Child Sexual Exploitation can happen to any young person regardless of gender, sexuality and background. It can happen online and offline. CSE is NEVER a young persons fault. Often young people do not realise they are being exploited and believe they are in a loving and consensual relationship.
If you feel you are being exploited you are not alone. There are specially trained professionals who can help you and your family. For further support please visit the below website.
Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE)
Child Criminal Exploitation is where a child or young person may be manipulated, forced or coerced into committing crimes on behalf of gangs or individuals. This can sometimes be known as County Lines. If you feel this could be happening to you, or some-one you know, it is important that you speak to a trusted adult.
