CSE Awareness Day 2019
Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18 into sexual activity.
The National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding CSE, encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance approach to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children.
Slough Children’s Services Trust is committed to supporting NWG, who organise the event, in the fight against CSE and by supporting victims and their families who are subjected to child sexual exploitation. You can read more about the campaign by visiting the Stop CSE website.
Would you be able to spot CSE? Do you know the signs to look out for?
- Has the young person received unexplained gifts or money?
- Do they use their mobile phone excessively and/or secretively?
- Do they have significantly older friends?
- Have they been picked up from home or school by someone you don’t know?
- Are they associating with other young people who are already known to be vulnerable or involved in exploitation?
- Have they started playing truant from school or regularly going missing from home?
- Have they suffered from a sexually-transmitted infection?
- Are they self-harming?
- Has their appearance changed?
If you are concerned that a child or young person in Slough is being harmed through abuse or neglect, our Front Door is where to start. Find out more by visiting the Emergencies/Concern page.
Together, we can work to inform, educate and prevent child sexual exploitation.
