What is Child Sexual Exploitation?
0300 126 1000 or Northamptonshire Police 101 or 999 in an emergency.
Sexual exploitation of children and young people under the age of 18 involves exploitative situations, contexts and relationships where the young person (or third person/s) receive ‘something’ (e.g. money, gifts, affection, food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol or cigarettes) as a result of them performing, and/or another or others performing on them, sexual activities.
Child Sexual Exploitation can occur through the use of technology without the child’s immediate recognition; for example being persuaded to post images on the internet/ mobile phones without immediate payment or gain.
