This is a report on child sexual exploitation by an independent group chaired by the Department of Health.

The child sexual exploitation health working group report makes recommendations to improve the health and wellbeing of children who have experienced sexual exploitation. The members of this working group have practical experience of working with and commissioning services for victims of child sexual exploitation. The recommendations are designed to help health services improve prevention techniques and to achieve the best possible results for affected children and young people. They are built on experience and expertise and should be acted on appropriately. Through making such changes, health practitioners can make a real difference that will help protect children from sexual exploitation, identify and intervene in cases of child sexual exploitation, and provide the help they need to reclaim their lives.
