Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a top priority for Catholic Children’s Society (Shrewsbury Diocese).
High profile cases in places such as Rochdale, Oxfordshire and Rotherham have highlighted the need for multi-agency partners and police forces to work together and be vigilant; be aware of CSE signs and identify children and young people who are at risk.
As such, Catholic Children’s Society in partnership with Merseyside Police are supporting the Listen to My Story with the aim of raising the awareness of CSE to reduce harm to children and young people who are being sexually exploited, but do not believe they are being sexually exploited.
CSE is child abuse and children and young people who become involved face high risks to their physical, emotional and psychological health and well-being.
Safeguarding vulnerable children and young people is the responsibility of everyone.
