A child is sexually abused when they are forced or persuaded to take part in sexual activities.
This doesn't have to be physical contact, and it can happen online. Sometimes, the child won't understand that what's happening to them is abuse.
They may not even understand that it's wrong, or they may be afraid to speak out.
Grooming is when someone builds an emotional connection with a child to gain their trust for the purposes of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, or trafficking.
Children and young people can be groomed online or face-to-face, by a stranger or by someone they know - for example a family member, friend, or professional.
In this course, we will learn more about child sexual exploitation, grooming, and the impact.
