Information for Families and Children
Signs of sexual exploitation range from changes in mood, physical appearance and eating, to appearing with unexplained gifts, secretive mobile phone use and regularly missing school. To find out more about the signs, please scroll down to the leaflets for parents and carers and for young people.
You may be unsure about whether you're right to be worried, but it is important that you don't keep any concerns to yourself.
