If you have any concerns that a child you know may be a victim of Child Sexual Exploitation report it to:

  • Dorset Police by calling 101
  • Crimestoppers (anonymously) on 0800 555 111.

If you have any concerns about people who pose a risk to, or target, groom or sexually abuse young people please report this on the Dorset Police website.

Alternatively, talk to someone who works with them, such as their teacher, pastoral support worker, youth worker or social worker.

You can also call or email your local police safeguarding unit to discuss any concerns or questions you have with one of our specialist staff.
