The Scottish Government will be launching a campaign to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation week commencing 25 January 2016.

The national awareness campaign will be aimed primarily at parents/carers and children and young people aged 11-17 years old and will include TV advertising and poster material which will run for a three week period.

Partnership material is currently being developed in order to reach the youth audience and a campaign website is also being developed that will highlight the risks as well as offering advice and support.

A practitioners toolkit will be made available on the website ahead of the launch where interested parties will be able to download material for use in their local areas. Further information on how to access these materials will be provided in due course.

The campaign has been developed with stakeholders and is part of the Scottish Government’s National Action Plan to Tackle Child Sexual Exploitation, published in November 2014.
