Child Sexual Exploitation Training

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that happens in all communities but much of it remains hidden and unreported. It can happen to young people regardless of gender and can be perpetrated by men, women, children and peers. CSE has strong links to other forms of exploitation such as Child Criminal Exploitation and Trafficking. 

CSE can be a complex subject with many different models. The grooming process will be different for each individual child and young person, depending of their push and pull factors and many forms of exploitation take place online without the child or young person ever physically meeting their exploiters. 

We also facilitate educational workshops for Young People
