Over recent years, the prevalence of child sexual exploitation (CSE) has been brought to national attention through failures in the cases of Rotherham and Rochdale. In January 2021, the Home Office released the Tackling Child Sexual Abuse Strategy to address the threat of CSE on a national level. The national lockdown has also triggered feelings of loneliness and isolation among young people, therefore increasing vulnerability. With most young people increasing their digital footprint over this period, the danger of online sexual abuse has only been exacerbated. As a result, tackling child sexual exploitation must be placed at the top of the agenda for all organisations involved in safeguarding children and young people.

  • 15% of young girls and 5% of young boys are estimated to experience some form of sexual abuse before the age of 16
  • Approximately 76% of adults who experienced rape or assault as children did not tell anyone about their experience at the time
  • From 2019 to 2020 there was an 11% increase in people contacting the Stop It Now! helpline for child sexual abuse

Join us at The Preventing Child Sexual Exploitation Conference 2022 to hear about how key organisations across the public and voluntary sectors are identifying, preventing, and supporting victims of CSE. This event will showcase a series of best practice case studies covering the key topics and challenges faced in tackling child sexual exploitation including online safety, contextual safeguarding, preventing abuse, disruption activity and supporting victims. There will also be an opportunity to network with other colleagues that are working to safeguard young people and children from exploitation.
