Sexual abuse

Child sexual abuse is where a child or young person is forced, or tricked, into taking part in sexual activity. Government statutory guidance provides a detailed definition of child sexual abuse (see Working Together 2018 at page 107, Annex B).

Where can a parent get advice and support about child sexual abuse?

There are specialist organisations that provide information, advice, courses and support in relation to child sexual abuse. There is help and support available for:

  • Children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse
  • Parents and carers copying with distress of discovering their child has been sexually abused
  • Mothers and carers who are in contact with a man who poses a sexual risk to a child
  • And for adults who are, or are worried they may, sexually harm a child.

See the Child abuse, bullying and exploitation section of our Useful links page for details.
