Our new report, produced in collaboration with Paradigm Research and funded by Comic Relief is the culmination of one to one interviews with more than 40 children from a range of backgrounds who have run away and been victims of sexual exploitation before the age of 16. Their experiences starkly demonstrate the variety of reasons why children choose to runaway and how easily they can find themselves at risk and in danger of being sexually exploited. The research also shows that running away can be the result of having been exploited for sex.

This report focuses on research findings addressing the relationship between running away and CSE; diversity and running away and CSE; professionals and young people's views of measures to address running away and CSE; discussion of the research findings.
