Sexual exploitation affects thousands of children and young people every year. Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) can be hard to detect and abusers are very clever in their manipulation. Some young people won’t even be aware that it is happening to them.
Barnardos have a specialist Child Sexual Exploitation worker who works specifically with young people at risk of sexual exploitation. The CSE worker works with parents to increase their awareness and understanding of the risk and indicators of sexual exploitation and is helping to identify the issue of sexual exploitation in Hartlepool.
Get to know the tell tale signs, and a number of practical steps you can take to protect children in your life.
