NYA supporting CSE Awareness Day

18 Mar 2015

The National Youth Agency is supporting National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day on March 18.

Jon Boagey, acting CEO said, “Child sexual exploitation robs young people of their confidence, self-esteem and blunts their lives often at a time when they should be discovering who they are and what their future holds.

“Youth workers offer young people support and trust, and thanks to the unique relationship, are well placed to identify those at risk of harm and alert the relevant authorities.

“We are adding the National Youth Agency’s voice to the NWG Network’s calls to highlight the issues surrounding CSE; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children developing inappropriate relationships with other children.”
