On March 18, we want the world to unite against child exploitation.

Child exploitation (CE)  involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18

The National Child Exploitation Awareness Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding CE; 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 sexual exploitation. But they cannot succeed without the support of people like you.

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