CSE Awareness

A young person's guide

Something's Not Right

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is happening in Warwickshire and we all need to know about it. Being aware of it is the first step towards putting a stop to it.


Following CSE Awareness Day, we want to highlight the issues to younger people in the community as well as to parents, carers and teachers.


You might have heard the words child sexual exploitation, or the term CSE, at school, at home, on the news - but what does it really mean?

It's when someone you meet, maybe your boyfriend or girlfriend, someone who is supposed to care for you, ends up hurting you, frightening you, or persuading or expecting you to do sexual things you don't want to do.

But you might not have even met them, you could have talked to them online, maybe sent pictures to each other, before arranging to meet.

They don't love you, often the people who are supposed to care for us, are the ones who can hurt us the most.

Where someone takes advantage of you sexually by giving the illusion of love and care, or by giving you gifts, food or accommodation in return for sex - it's sexual exploitation.

If someone has power over you and use threats or violence, so they can get you to perform sexual acts for them or for others - it's sexual exploitation.
