All children and young people are at risk of being sexually exploited, regardless of age, gender or where they live

Preventing children and young people from being exposed to child sexual exploitation (CSE) and providing support to those who have been directly affected has been at the heart of our work for over 20 years. You can read more about this on our CSE page

Our services provide confidential and independent support and advice for all children and young people who are either at risk of, or actually experiencing sexual exploitation.

In addition to our direct work with the children and young people affected, our policy team works to lobby and influence decision makers and parliament to ensure that children and young people at risk of sexual exploitation are identified as early as possible and given the support they need to move on with their life.

To ensure that our services provide the right support for children and young people, we have developed a number of new services and resources for young people and parents, partnering with the University of Bedfordshire to assess and advise our national programme to tackle CSE. You can read about our latest report, Old enough to know better, on our interactive report page.
