Child Sexual Exploitation and COVID 19

The current situation means that children and young people are likely to be spending more time online than they would if they were at school. Online exploitation can affect anyone, boy or girl, from any community.

Devon & Cornwall Police’s new campaign aims to raise awareness of online grooming and child exploitation. To help keep young people safe and protect them from offenders who might attempt to target them online, they’ve collected information to support parents,carers and young people to spot the signs of online exploitation. There is also advice on who to talk to and where you can get help. Please remember – it is never the child’s fault.
