See me – Hear me, is an organization that fights Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and sexual abuse. CSE involves perpetrators grooming their victims in various ways, such as in person, via mobiles or online to gain their trust before emotionally and sexually abusing them for their own gain.
The victim will be tricked into believing they are in a loving relationship.
CSE can take place in many forms, whether through a seemingly consensual relationship, or a young person being forced to have sex in return for some kind of payment, such as drugs, money, gifts or even protection and affection.
CSE is a crime that can affect any child, anytime, regardless of their social or ethnic background.
National CSE Awareness day is March 18 – make a personal pledge to help tackle child sexual exploitation.
