Issue

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse where children are sexually exploited for money, power or status

This can involve violent, humiliating and degrading sexual assaults, but does not always involve physical contact and can happen online. For example, young people may be persuaded or forced to share sexually explicit images of themselves, have sexual conversations by text, or take part in sexual activities using a webcam. 

Children or young people who are being sexually exploited may not understand that they are being abused. They often trust their abuser and may be tricked into believing they’re in a loving, consensual relationship.
