Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual, emotional and physical abuse of children. It can be difficult to recognise the warning signs of CSE as they are similar to the challenges that all parents of teenage or near-teenage children face.
It's important that you know how to spot the signs of CSE, whether you are a parent, young person or a member of the public.
If you are a child, young person or parent worried about CSE, see the Get Safe - keeping children and young people safe from criminal exploitation for more information and support.
