What is Child Sexual Exploitation?
Child Sexual Exploitation is a form of sexual abuse that can affect any child or young person, anytime, anywhere.
It relates to situations where a young person is manipulated or forced into taking part in some form of sexual activity in return for something the young person needs or desires, for example; attention, a sense of belonging, affection, money, drugs, alcohol or accommodation.
The young person might think that their abuser is their friend or girl/boyfriend but the abuser is likely to be violent and /or abusive to get the young person to do what they want for them. They will control and manipulate the young person and try to isolate them from friends and family.
