A new campaign has been launched today to tackle child sexual abuse and exploitation in Sheffield.

The NSPCC and Sheffield's Safeguarding Children Board have launched a year-long campaign aimed at raising awareness of abuse and exploitation, and to improve cross-organisational working in the fight against sexual offences committed against children.

Jane Haywood, of Sheffield's Safeguarding Children Board, said: “This campaign goes to the heart of our work to prevent child sexual exploitation and abuse.

“It’s Not Okay, builds on our partnership work with colleagues from Sheffield City Council, South Yorkshire Police, health and the voluntary sector to help make sure that children, young people and parents are able to recognise the signs and indicators of child sexual exploitation, as well as raise awareness of the issue with people of all ages across the city, helping to protect future generations."
