Norfolk Police are supporting this year’s national child sexual exploitation awareness day, and say that everyone has a role to play in raising awareness.

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a form of child abuse where a victim is given something, often food, money, drugs, alcohol, or other gifts in exchange for sexual activity with the abuser.

As part of the initiative, on March 18, police in Norfolk will be taking to social media to bring home the message using hashtags #HelpingHands and #CSEDay18.

Parents can visit the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre’s (CEOP) Thinkuknow website at: for more information.

If you are concerned about someone’s behaviour towards your child, you can report this directly to CEOP via

Anyone with concerns about CSE can contact the police on 101.
