R U Wise To It?

R U Wise To It?

8:40am 9th July 2014

A powerful "hard-hitting" play Chelsea's Choice, based on the real-life experiences of sexually exploited children has officially marked the launch of a county-wide campaign to increase awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Buckinghamshire.

The campaign - 'R U Wise to It?' sees agencies across the County involved in safeguarding young people who work together to protect those at risk of child sexual exploitation.

CSE is a form of sexual abuse in which a young person is manipulated or forced into taking part in a sexual act often in return for attention, affection, gifts, money, drugs, alcohol or accommodation.

Any young person could become a victim of CSE- both boys and girls, but they are most at risk when they are vulnerable. Young people often show us rather than tell us that something is upsetting them.

Sometimes things that seem like normal teenage behaviour could be a sign a young person is being sexually exploited. 'R U Wise to It?' seeks to help people spot these tell tale signs and where to find help or report concerns.
