Who is at risk?
Any child or young person may be at risk of sexual exploitation, regardless of their family background or other circumstances. This includes boys and young men as well as girls and young women. However, some groups of young people are particularly vulnerable.  These include:

  • children and young people who have a history of running away or of going missing from home and care;

  • those with special needs;

  • those in and leaving residential and foster care;

  • migrant children, including those who do not have a legal immigration status;

  • unaccompanied asylum seeking children;

  • children who have disengaged from education;

  • children who are abusing drugs and alcohol;

  • those involved in gangs;

  • those engaged in risky internet use.

If you suspect a child is at risk of CSE, act on it and donít wait.
