Understanding Sexual Abuse
Child Sexual abuse is when a young person is forced, tricked or pressurised into any sexual activity with someone else including other young people.
The facts according to the NSPCC, 2019:
Young people don’t always understand or recognise sexual abuse and may be scared or embarrassed to tell someone. They might think they are in a consensual relationship; in some cases, they may trust or love their abuser and not recognise that they are being abused.
Sexual abuse can both happen online and offline.
