A harrowing a new video from the Children’s Society depicts the horror or children being exploited for sex.
It is part of the charity’s Seriously Awkward campaign which is calling on the Government to make sure that police have the means they need to protect 16 and 17 year olds from sexual exploitation, and that consent to take drugs and drink alcohol is never confused with consent to engage in sexual acts.
“This video is vital to our being able to draw attention to the what child sexual exploitation really is and raise the crucial funds we need to make sure we can help these children and keep more safe from being sexually exploited in the first place,” Matthew Reed, chief executive of The Children’s Society said.
