The Safeguarding Partnership Board is joining forces with multiple agencies in Jersey to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE) - as part of a national awareness day on Saturday 18th March.                     

In Jersey the educational campaign is being led by Jersey Youth Service, who will be visiting all secondary schools and will be in King Street on Saturday 18th March, to answer any questions from the public about CSE. Jersey Crimestoppers are also sponsoring an infomercial displayed at the Clock Tower in King Street to raise awareness that it is everyone's responsibility to keep children safe.

What is Child Sexual Exploitation?

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of child abuse where the victim is given something - food, money, drugs, alcohol, gifts - in exchange for sexual activity with the abuser. Offenders target vulnerable young people and use their power - physical, financial, emotional etc. - over the child to sexually abuse them. It can affect any child, anytime, anywhere – regardless of their social or ethnic background.

Speak Up Anonymously

If you are concerned about a young person in Jersey who may be involved in CSE please contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or using our Anonymous Online Form.  

You can also pledge your support and post your photo on social media with the hashtag #HelpingHands to help raise awareness of CSE or follow #CSEDay17.
