Join us in the Fight against Child Sexual Exploitation
National Charity NWG Network asks all to unite against child sexual exploitation for their National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day – 18th March 2018.
Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18 into sexual activity.
The National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day aims to highlight the issue surrounding child sexual exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children.

The overarching aim of this Protocol is to ensure that the children of a parent(s) with severe mental illness or substance misuse receive appropriate support, safeguarding and protection. Agencies have a collective responsibility to protect children. This requires effective communication and co-ordination of services at both strategic and operational levels.
It is essential that there is close cooperation and joint working by all Agencies involved with the family. This may include Social Care, Health, Education, Police, Probation and the Voluntary Sector. This Protocol provides the framework for joint working to ensure that children living with adults with severe mental illness and/ or substance misuse are safeguarded in North Wales.
All agencies need to work together in partnership with parents, wherever possible. Policies & Procedures – Children’s
