What is Child Sexual Exploitation?

Sexual exploitation is when someone uses a young person for sex in return for something - money, drugs and drink or somewhere to stay for the night.

What is grooming?

Grooming is when someone tricks a young person into thinking they are special or in a relationship with the intention of sexually exploiting them in the future.  They often gain a young person's trust through giving presents, emotional support, food, etc.
