What is CSE?

Child sexual exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse. It occurs where an individual or group takes advantage of an imbalance of power to coerce, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under the age of 18 into sexual activity

(a) in exchange for something the victim needs or wants, and/or
(b) for the financial advantage or increased status of the perpetrator or facilitator.

The victim may have been sexually exploited even if the sexual activity appears consensual. Child sexual exploitation does not always involve physical contact; it can also occur through the use of technology.
(Department for Education, 2017)

Raising Awareness of CSE in Norfolk

Some of the team on National CSE Awareness Day last year in Norwich with Chief Constable of Norfolk, Simon Bailey.

Reaching Norfolk

We are an independent service and young people choose to work with us.

We are co-located in the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) and work with the Police and Children’s Services to ensure that young people are getting the support they need.

In the last twelve months :

  • 500 young people have accessed The Rose Project

  • 940 face-to-face sessions have taken place

  • 699 1:1 sessions around CSE work have been conducted

  • 189 return home interviews & missing support work sessions have taken place
