Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a type of sexual abuse. Children in exploitative situations and relationships receive something such as gifts, money or affection as a result of performing sexual activities or others performing sexual activities on them. Children or young people may be tricked into believing they’re in a loving, consensual relationship. They might be invited to parties and given drugs and alcohol. They may also be groomed and exploited online. Some children and young people are trafficked into or within the UK for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Sexual exploitation can also happen to young people in gangs.
If you have suffered abuse just always remember that it is never your fault, SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT.
Remember if you need someone to talk to you can talk to anyone at school or alternatively you can ring Childline on 0800 11 11 – 24 Hour Line.
