Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) occurs when a young person engages in sexual activity in exchange for money, goods or basic needs.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation is a growing problem for many young people today and the risk of being exploited can come in many forms such as:

We live in a sexualised society and young people are exposed to sexualised behaviour on a daily basis through the media.
