Protecting children at risk of CSE is everyone’s responsibility
If you work with children, young people and/or families, you have a duty to be aware of CSE as a child protection issue, and how to spot the signs. Working in multi-agency partnerships with police, social care and the third sector, we can put a stop to this form of child abuse.
