Child sexual exploitation

Incidents of child sexual exploitation (CSE) have been widely reported in the media recently.

As a parent, it is easy to think "it won't happen in the Harrogate district", or "at least my children won't be involved in it", but how do you know that this would be the case? CSE is happening in the Harrogate district and it is important for parents to know the issues

  • would you know what child sexual exploitation is
  • would you know how to spot the signs that your children are being or have been sexually exploited
  • would you know what to do if you believe your child is involved

The partnership has produced a briefing as a guide to help you understand the issues more clearly.
