Not in our Community: Students become champions against CSE

This year’s National Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day took place on Saturday 18th March. Its aim was to highlight the issues surrounding Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE); encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse to prevent adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children.

In the run up to the national awareness day, a group of Withernsea High School students attended a CSE Youth Summit at Hessle High School. The summit was organised by ‘Not In Our Community’ – a Humberside Police initiative to protect young people from grooming and child sexual exploitation.
