Commercial Sexual Exploitation

Commercial Sexual Exploitation can include, but is not limited to: prostitution, lap dancing, stripping, pornography, human trafficking and sex for rent. No one should ever be forced into sexual activity without consent.


UK Modern Slavery & Exploitation Helpline - 08000 121 700

You’ll get through to a trained adviser who can help you with a range of options, including:

  • helping you or someone else get access to support services
  • reporting something you’ve seen or are concerned about
  • advice about abuse, exploitation or modern slavery
  • getting more information about training and raising awareness

Give your details in confidence or anonymously. You have a number of choices about what happens with your personal details. You can:

  • agree that you are OK with sharing your details with others – for example with police and/or a service provider
  • ask that your details are kept confidential. This means you are willing to give your details to the Helpline and be contacted by them, but want to remain anonymous to others
  • ask that your details are kept anonymous. This means you do not want to give your details to the Helpline and/or others

They will always seek your consent before providing your details to others, unless:

  • they think you or another person is in imminent danger
  • they think there is a situation involving child abuse or danger to a person under the age of 18
In an emergency call 999

The police will help and protect you when you report sexual exploitation. To report to the police you can call 101 for non-emergency contact or call 999 if you are in immediate danger.

If you are unable to talk on the phone, you can use the silent solution.
