Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) can have a serious long-term impact on every aspect on children’s lives, health and education. It damages the lives of families and carers, which can lead to family break-ups.
We have developed a CSE Strategy and Action Plan to detect, prevent and disrupt all forms of child sexual exploitation including online child abuse as well as contact offences. The missing from home and child sexual exploitation procedures focus on early identification and prevention meaning we identify children at risk and work to reduce this risk, rather than waiting for harm to occur before we act.
We have also developed a CSE Disruption Toolkit allowing practitioners highlight to the police risk factor behaviour around potential perpetrators. The use of this toolkit continues to be promoted in presentations, awareness raising events.
A new website has been launched by a multi-agency ERASE team, as source for help and information for children, parents and the wider community. The new website can be found at www.eraseabuse.org.

You can find the child exploitation video here.
Further information on the video is available from A21’s website here.
A21 also have corresponding posters, leaflets and other resources to use in conjunction with the videos that they would be happy to provide you with. These resources have been used in a variety of ways including as part of training, displayed as posters as well as leaflets for general informational purposes.
