Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse; it involves children and young people receiving something, for example accommodation, drugs, gifts or affection, as a result of them performing sexual activities, or having others perform sexual activities on them. It could take the form of grooming of children, e.g. to take part in sexual activities or to post sexual images of themselves on the internet.
Approximately 85% of CSE cases being investigated in Tameside involve online activity.
Tameside are hosting free sessions to help combat this – Parents and carers will be able to bring their children’s mobiles, tablets and laptops to get hands on help with updating security settings. Sessions can be booked at http://www.tameside.gov.uk/libraries/events/onlinesafety
