Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a complex form of abuse. It can be challenging for professionals to know how best to support children affected by it.
We evaluated our Protect and Respect programme which supports children and young people who have been, or are at risk of being, sexually exploited. We looked at the programme’s one-to-one and group work to find out what support helped young people.

Our evaluation of Protect and Respect identified some key factors that help support children and young people who are experiencing or at risk of CSE.
Based on these key findings we have made improvements to our Protect and Respect service.
