Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
Child Sexual Exploitation is a form of abuse. It occurs when an individual or group coerces, manipulates or deceives a young person (under 18) into sexual activity in exchange for money, gifts or something the victim needs or wants. It can occur in real life or through the use of technology.
This training will be relevant to all Foster Carers but particularly those caring for teenagers. We will explore the nature and scope of child sexual exploitation in Northern Ireland, the risks and indicators of child sexual exploitation and going missing. We will also explore the links between abuse, current behaviour and vulnerabilities in our young people alongside the current legislation, policy and agency roles/responsibility in regards to the problem of young people going missing and child sexual exploitation.
