Welcome to the NWG Network

The NWG (formerly The National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People) is a Charitable organisation formed as a UK network of over 12 000 practitioners who disseminate our information down through their services, to professionals working on the issue of child sexual exploitation (CSE) and trafficking within the UK. Our Network covers voluntary and statutory services and private companies working in this field. We offer support, advice and raise the profile, provide updates, training, share national developments, influence the development of national and local policy informed by practice. We have developed our youth advisory board to enable young peoples' voices to be heard through the work that we do.
 
Our team is made up of specialists with a range of skills and are there to offer support and expertise to the network, we will proactively engage with Local Safeguarding Children's Boards (LSCB's) and their partner agencies, media, researchers and policy writers promoting CSE, training, prevention work, disruption, prosecution and therapeutic care for victims and survivors by sharing effective practice, developing according to need, and actively seeking effective practice from other countries tackling sexual exploitation and trafficking within the UK.
 
The NWG is the only child sexual exploitation network working across voluntary/statutory agencies tackling CSE, with links across Europe, South East Asia, Africa and USA exchanging knowledge, understanding and dedicated to seeking ways to find alternative solutions.
 
New initiatives to help get the message out include an annual National CSE Awareness Day and using social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
