COVID-19

The protection of Children & Young People remains an absolute necessity during this period of isolation, which has the potential to create a greater risk of Exploitation especially as this will lead to increasing activity online presenting a particular acute danger during this lockdown period.

NWG continues to provide support for professionals with our unique position within the “Safeguarding Partnership Family” during this time. Together we can continue to support those who are or could be affected by Exploitation.

What
Is Child
Sexual
Exploitation

A Definition

Child sexual exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse.

It occurs where an individual or group takes advantage of an imbalance of power to coerce, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under the age of 18 into sexual activity (a) in exchange for something the victim needs or wants, and/or (b) for the financial advantage or increased status of the perpetrator or facilitator.

The victim may have been sexually exploited even if the sexual activity appears consensual.

Child sexual exploitation does not always involve physical contact; it can also occur through the use of technology.

Ways To Help

Together, we can work to inform, educate and prevent this form of child sexual abuse within the UK.

The National Child Exploitation Awareness Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding CSE and wider exploitation encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children.

NWG are committed to the fight against CE and supporting victims and their families who are subjected to child exploitation. But they cannot succeed without the support of people like you.
