Young People Services - BASE
 
Sexual exploitation is a form of sexual abuse, in which a young person is manipulated or forced into taking part in a sexual act. This could be as part of a seemingly consensual relationship, or in return for attention, affection, money, drugs, alcohol or somewhere to stay. The young person may think that their abuser is their friend, or even their boyfriend or girlfriend. But they will put them into dangerous situations, forcing the young person to do things they don’t want to do. The abuser may physically or verbally threaten the young person, or be violent towards them. They will control and manipulate them, and try to isolate them from friends and family.

BASE provides support to young people 10 – 18-years-old who are having difficulties like missing school, running away, may be in relationships they’re unhappy with or doing sexual things they don’t really want to do. These things can lead to abuse or sexual exploitation.
Our aim is to support young people to help keep them safe and happy. Each young person has a one to one worker who will support them around problems they might be having where they live or at school.
We can look at things like low self-esteem, understand-ing healthy relationships, body image, personal safety, drugs, alcohol, self-harm, sexual health and difficulties with family or friends, or whatever you feel is important for you.
We want young people to achieve their goals and ambi-tions and feel good about themselves.
