Child exploitation

Children in care may be at higher risk of child exploitation.

During your health assessment we will ask you questions about your lifestyle and try to identify if you are putting yourself at risk of harm or exploitation. If we are worried that you may be at risk we will ask you some additional questions. This will help us to identify if you need urgent help and support to maintain your health and wellbeing.
