Child Sexual Exploitation

Child Sexual Exploitation is a form of child abuse which affects both boys and girls and will have a serious, long-term impact on their lives.

The sexual exploitation of young people involves situations and relationships where young people receive “something” as a result of them performing sexual activity or having another person perform sexual activity on them. They might receive things like food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gifts, money or affection.

Youngsters may feel they must have sex because an adult gives them something, or because they feel threatened or frightened.

To tackle this issue and safeguard children who may be at risk, we must raise awareness throughout the community.

Young people need to understand what constitutes a healthy relationship and be supported in making informed and positive choices so they can protect themselves from sexual exploitation. This includes how to identify and avoid risks and knowing where they can go for help.

All children have the right to live a life which is free from abuse. Education on the risk of the different forms of abuse needs to be delivered to both boys and girls from age 9-10.

More information about Child Sexual Exploitation can be found on our website.
