The CSE The Signs initiative also seeks to improve public understanding of the issue and empower action.

With our online activity having increased during lockdown, the campaign will explain what we should look out for and how to stay safe.

CSE The Signs will give members of the public advice and support available if they or a loved one is affected, while also ensuring no-one feels alone.
