The National Child Sexual Exploitation Action Plan has focused on four approaches to help target offenders and protect children and young people through new ways of working.

Across this site you can learn more about the analysis, the work undertaken and resources developed to achieve the ambitions of the Action Plan.

If you have any concerns about a child or young person we have more information on what to do.

This website showcases the work of the National CSA/E action plan and prevention programme funded between 2017-2018. 

The Children’s Society has been funded by Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner to deliver the prevention programme for 2019-2020, and this time covers a wider remit. 

The programme is aimed at preventing and lowering incidences of child criminal exploitation and modern day slavery, as well as child sexual abuse and exploitation. 

Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Policing and Prevention

Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) and Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) suffer both in the short-term; from the actions of the perpetrator and in the long-term from the impact of the trauma they experience. CSA and CSE have been subject to significant national attention in recent years and the Government designated CSE as a strategic policing priority. This decision gave CSE the same level of significance as terrorism and serious organised crime.
