Impacts on all parts of UK
The first TV campaign in the UK focused on child sexual exploitation launched last week with the message that ‘child sexual exploitation can happen to any young person, regardless of their gender or background’.  New research shows 93% of parents have heard of child sexual exploitation, but 29% know little about it and 36% believe it won’t affect their family.  A new TV advert & website (www.csethesigns.scot) show how conversations online can potentially lead to a young person placing themselves in danger and highlight how to spot the warning signs.
