Child Sexual Exploitation is happening in Warwickshire. Don't ignore it.

How you can help

Abusers often make use of certain businesses and premises when carrying out child sexual exploitation. For example, they:

  • use places where people socialise and relax to befriend and 'groom' victims
  • buy their victims 'treats' such as food, alcohol, cigarettes or gifts
  • help their victims gain access to over-18 establishments and parties
  • frequent venues known to be regularly visited by young people, e.g. shopping centres and entertainment complexes
  • take advantage of young people drinking alcohol (underage), whose judgement is impaired
  • provide victims with free transport using taxis
  • use their place of work to 'groom' young people - for example by giving them free or 'VIP' access
  • groom victims left unsupervised in areas such as toilets, entertainment booths, beer gardens or 'play zones'
  • use information technology to record and distribute images of children and young people
  • use those venues that provide private areas or overnight accommodation to take advantage of vulnerable victims
