Child sexual abuse and exploitation in the night-time economy

The Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse has published findings from a study carried out by NatCen Social Research looking at what workers in night-time economy – businesses and services that have direct contact with the public after 6pm – know and do about child sexual exploitation (CSE), and child sexual abuse (CSA). The study of 126 night economy workers found that: perceptions of risk ranged from high to none at all across the industries and roles; not all workers in the night-time economy feel equipped to recognise and respond to the warning signs; levels of training, information and support around CSE varied across industry sectors; and that  training is not widespread across the night-time economy.
