Sexual Exploitation can happen to any child, anywhere.

Recognise the signs

Sexual exploitation affects thousands of children and young people every year. By knowing the tell-tale signs, we can all play an important role in reducing that number.

Look out for:

  • unexplained gifts
  • changes in mood
  • going missing
  • staying out late
  • being secretive about where they are going
  • lack of interest in activities and hobbies
  • missing school.

If something's not right an you think this may be happening to someone you know, please call police on 101 (always call 999 in an emergency) or contact a support agency. Visit our local and national contacts page via the links to the right.
