child sexual exploitation (CSE) awareness campaign (11-17)

The Scottish Government are currently running a campaign to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE).

The campaign aims to raise awareness among those aged 11 to 17 and their parents/carers of what constitutes CSE and where they can go for advice and support if they have concerns.

It is part of a coordinated response from the Scottish Government, Police Scotland and Child Protection Committees Scotland to respond to increasing reports of online child sexual abuse and exploitation, as was highlighted by Police Scotland recently.

Below you can access a lesson which will be delivered to our young people via their PSE Teams this week. This is a lesson you may also wish to watch as the key messages apply to parents and carers as well as young people themselves.


Please see our Twitter feed for a hard hitting video clip to accompany the campaign.
