Old enough to know better?: Why sexually exploited teenagers are being overlooked - Full report

We work with hundreds of teenagers each year at risk of, or experiencing sexual exploitation. We see that too often 16 and 17 year olds are particularly at risk, not identified as victims and let down by the law which doesn't give them the same protection as younger children. This report on how child sexual exploitation affects older teenagers, follows on from our broad report, Seriously Awkward: How vulnerable 16-17 year olds are falling through the cracks. It examines what happens when an older teenager reveals they are being exploited, and what can be done to improve protection and support.
