Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation


This webpage from Rape Crisis England and Wales covers child sexual abuse and exploitation. It is beginning to be acknowledges that childhood sexual abuse happens far more than people realise or perhaps want to believe. Around half of the people who contact Rape Crisis are adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.


This is a great webpage for people who want more information about child sexual abuse, and what they can do if they currently are suffering, know someone who is suffering or have suffered in the past. It is important to get the right support following an experience of childhood sexual abuse.
