Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
CSE is a type of sexual abuse in which children are sexually exploited for money, power or status. Children or young people may be tricked into believing they’re in a loving, consensual relationship. They might be invited to parties and given drugs and alcohol and they may also be groomed online. The links below give you more information about what CSE is and where to find help.
Bullying and Cyberbullying
Bullying is behaviour that hurts someone – such as name calling, hitting, pushing, spreading rumours, threatening or undermining someone and it can happen anywhere, at any time of day or night. The links below give you lots of information about bullying and what to do about it.
