WHAT IS CSE?
Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) of children and young people under 18 involves exploitative situations, contexts and relationship where young persons (or third persons) receive ‘something’ (e.g. Food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) as a result of them performing, and/or another or others performing on them, sexual activities. This is often referred to as grooming.
CSE can occur through the use of technology without the child’s immediate recognition, e.g. being persuaded to post sexual image on the internet without immediate payment and gain.
