Child Exploitation

How is East Riding dealing with child exploitation?

East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership know that child exploitation is a major issue across the UK. Hidden from view and going unnoticed, vulnerable girls and boys are being groomed and abused, leaving them traumatised and scarred for life. East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership is working to prevent child exploitation like all other forms of child abuse.

As a partnership, we are working hard together to protect children. Child exploitation is complex and brings many challenges that cannot be dealt with quickly by a single agency, which is why, in the East Riding, we have a partnership approach.

The Child Exploitation Strategy sets out how East Riding will work towards ensuring that effective and co-ordinated measures and responses are in place to safeguard all children and young people at risk of or who are experiencing exploitation.
