CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation)

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is an increasingly high profile issue that affects children and young people of all background and from all communities, right across the UK.  Children are most vulnerable to sexual exploitation between the ages of 13 and 15, but younger victims are being targeted all the time.

 

PLEASE NOTE ALTHOUGH THIS MULTI-AGENCY TRAINING MAKES USE OF THE BARNARDOS MATERIALS WHICH ARE ALSO USED IN FIFE SINGLE AGENCY TRAINING ON CSE WITHIN NHS, POLICE, SOCIAL WORK AND EDUCATION IT IS A FULL DAY AND OFFERS MULTI-AGENCY PERSPECTIVES.
