#CSEDay17 in Warwickshire is all about #HelpingHands

As part of CSE Awareness Day 2017, Warwickshire CSE, Missing Children & Trafficking Team have set all schools, youth groups and young people’s services across Warwickshire a challenge.

The challenge is for young people and staff to raise awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation in any way they like. It could not be easier and can be done in a variety of ways leaving the cope for creativity wide.
Many schools, youth groups and other agencies around Warwickshire are undertaking activities and it’s not too late for you to get involved and raise awareness of this important issue.

Cllr Izzi Seccombe, Leader of Warwickshire County Council, said:

“Many agencies are working together to tackle CSE in Warwickshire, but the public has their role to play in telling us when they see something that’s not right.

“If you think something’s not right – chances are, you are right!”

Cllr Dave Parsons, Chair of the Children’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee, added:

“Child Sexual Exploitation is a form of sexual abuse that can affect any child, anytime, anywhere – regardless of their social or ethnic background. It is something that we all need to be aware of and take action when we see the signs.”
