North Wales Police are supporting National Child Exploitation Awareness Day (CEA Day).
CEA Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding Child Exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children exploiting and abusing their peers.
Spot the signs:
Becoming especially secretive
Stopping engaging with usual friends
Associating with older men or women
Going missing from home
Defensive about location and activities
Receiving odd calls and messages
Possessing new, expensive items
We will be sharing #HelpingHands pledges throughout the day to raise awareness of child exploitation and to improve the chances of a young person being heard and to deter sexual predators, modern slavery and trafficking. Find out more about the signs on exploitation on the NWG website.
Follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to see our CEA Day posts and get involved too by posting your own pledges and using the hashtags #HelpingHands and #CEADay21.
