Appropriate Language Guidance

Guidance has been developed to help professionals to use appropriate language when communicating about children and young who are experiencing child sexual exploitation or criminal exploitation. 

Language implying that the child or young person is complicit in any way, or responsible for the crimes that have happened or may happen to them, must be avoided.  The guidance provides lots of suggestions on how to express concerns and describe what the child or young person is experiencing that avoid any suggestion that the child is to blame.
