Stop child exploitation
Child Criminal Exploitation occurs where an individual or group takes advantage of a person under the age of 18 and may coerce, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under that age into any activity (a) in exchange for something the victim needs or wants, and/or (b) for the financial advantage of the perpetrator or facilitator and/or (c) through violence or the threat of violence.
It is the responsibility of premises license holders and their managers to ensure appropriate measures are in place at venues for the protection of children from harm.
