Child sexual exploitation

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is someone taking advantage of you sexually, for their own benefit. Through threats, bribes, violence, humiliation, or by telling you that they love you, they will get you to do sexual things for their own, or other people’s enjoyment.

If this has happened to you, it's not your fault. We will listen and help you move forwards.
