Grooming of children
Recent soap stories have highlighted grooming of children within their storylines.
Grooming is when someone builds an emotional connection with a child to gain their trust for the purposes of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation or trafficking.
Children and young people can be groomed online or face-to-face, by a stranger or by someone they know – for example a family member, friend or professional.To find out more about grooming and support please click on the link here at the NSPCC WEBSITE or on the CEOP video here
