Preventing Child Sexual Exploitation
What is Child Sexual Expolitation?
Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is when young people under the age of 18 are encouraged, trapped, forced or coerced into a sexual relationship or situation by an adult.
CSE often involves the young person being offered something in return for performing sexual acts, such as alchol, cigarettes, gifts, money, drugs and affection.
