Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day

Sara Munro Director of Quality & Nursing said “As a provider of health care to children and young people, including specialist sexual health and health care for children looked after, we recognise the important role we play with our partners to identifying children who are vulnerable to exploitation and working with them ‎to help keep them safe from harm. Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation is a partnership effort and also relies on communities to share information they hold and share this with professionals so we can take the necessary action.”

Cumbria Constabulary is committed to prevent child sexual abuse, helping victims and bringing offenders to justice. It is a crime that can affect any child, anytime, anywhere - regardless of their social or ethnic background.

Many young people who are being abused do not realise they are at risk and will not call for help but if you know what you're looking for, you can take steps to help them.

Members of the public can support this campaign by sharing information on their social network sites and visiting the Cumbria Constabulary website for more information.
