Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)

The sexual exploitation of children and young people has been identified across the United Kingdom, in both rural and urban areas. It affects boys and young men as well as girls and young women. It robs children of their childhood and can have a serious long-term impact on every aspect of their lives, health and education. It damages the lives of families and carers and can lead to family break-ups. Sexual exploitation of children and young people is a crime.

In addition to the core business and functions of the LSCB, we have decided, as a Board, to focus on some areas that require further or emerging focus and we have called these Particular Interests. It is the intent of the LSCB to improve the lives of children in Cumbria by ensuring that all those who work with young people are aware of what child sexual exploitation is, will intervene as early as possible, will respond to the needs of victims to repair the damage and will work together to prevent children becoming victims in the first place.
