Safeguarding children and young people from sexual exploitation: supplementary guidance to 'Working together to safeguard children'
This guidance sets out how organisations and individuals - including police, teachers, social workers and health workers - should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people from sexual exploitation.
It aims to help agencies to: develop local preventive strategies; identify those at risk of being sexually exploited, to safeguard those who are being sexually exploited; and to identify and prosecute perpetrators. A chapter on the roles and responsibilities of agencies is included.
The guidance should be read in conjunction with 'Working Together to Safeguard Children'.
