Child Sexual Exploitation Practice Guidance & Procedure 2016

CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION (CSE) is when a young person is used by being made or tricked into doing something sexual, sometimes receiving something in return like love, affection, gifts, money, drugs or alcohol.

#SAY SOMETHING is a campaign directed at children and young people, who may be worried about their own safety, or the safety of a friend, in relation to Child Sexual Exploitation. Say Something is a national campaign driven by the National Working Group in partnership with ‘Missing Persons’ National helpline. 

It is not OK for someone to expect you or your friends to do things you don’t want to. Listen to your instinct; if it doesn’t feel right – tell someone.

Say Something if you See Something - If you see something that makes you feel uneasy, like a child in the wrong company who may be scared and need your help.  

You can report it anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111; Humberside Police on 101 quoting ‘Operation Makesafe’; or at Fearless
