Child Sexual Exploitation - DfE step-by-step guide

The Department for Education (DfE) has developed Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) guidance for frontline practitioners.

The step-by-step guide complements, and should be read in conjunction with, the Safeguarding children and young people from sexual exploitation statutory guidance published in 2009. It is intended for frontline practitioners in the statutory and voluntary and community sectors (VCS). It outlines the actions they should take, as a minimum, if they suspect that a child they are in contact with is being sexually exploited.

A copy of the step-by-step guide, together with further information on child sexual exploitation, can be found at:
