UNDERSTANDING THE RISKS

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE AT RISK OF CHILD
SEXUAL EXPLOITATION ARE:

  • Children and young people of any age up to 18
  • Both girls and boys
  • Young people from any community, regardless of religion or ethnicity
  • Though any young person can be targeted, some are more vulnerable than others

S&Sweb-2065

Any child – male or female – could be a victim of this form of abuse, regardless of their background.

Some young people may be more vulnerable to exploitation than others; for example young people with learning disabilities, and young people who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives.

Child sexual exploitation happens in all areas of the country, in cities, towns and villages.
