You are not alone, there are specially trained professionals that help support you and your family.
You can often hear about the horrible things people can do to each other on the internet, TV or perhaps even close to home, discussed in school or college. Some of the awful things that happen to young people happen because people use control and abuse trust in friendship and relationships both on-line or in person.
Making new friends and meeting a whole range of different people is something we all like to do and most people we meet will be genuine but sometimes you can meet people who might try and take advantage of you.
Child exploitation is child abuse. If you suspect that a young person is a victim or is at risk of child exploitation you must get professional help.
