What is CSE

Sexual exploitation of children and young people under 18 involves exploitative situations, contexts and relationships where the young person (or third person/s) receive ‘something’ (e.g. food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) as a result of them performing, and/or others performing on them sexual acts. These acts don’t have to be performed personally they could be through the use of technology via images or videos.

This can often be part of what looks like a consenting relationship. As the victim is tricked into thinking they are the boyfriend or girlfriend of the person who is grooming them.

A common feature of CSE is that the child or young person does not recognise the coercive nature of the relationship and does not see themselves as a victim of exploitation. Because of this it is a largely hidden and unreported crime that can effect any child regardless of age, race, religion or gender.
