In all cases those exploiting the child/young person have power over them by virtue of their age, gender, intellect, physical strength and/or economic or other resources.Violence, coercion and intimidation are often common features; involvement in exploitative relationships being characterized in the main by the child/young person’s limited availability of choice resulting from their social, economic and/or emotional vulnerability. Quite a feat considering 43-year-old Jacob — second youngest child of the late Lord William Rees-Mogg — must be the poshest man in politics, alternately known as The Mogg, a Bertie Wooster throwback, ‘David Cameron’s worst nightmare’ and ‘the honourable member for the early 20th century’.He has also been surgically attached to his briefcase since his first day at Eton and, during the 1997 General Election, took his nanny canvassing during his failed bid to win the safe Labour stronghold of Central Fife. As much as anything it was the petrol consumption: six miles to the gallon.’In the flesh, as he dollops clotted cream and jam onto his scone in the House of Commons tea room, Jacob is just as posh as you’d expect, indescribably polite and old-fashioned, very young looking and extremely funny and self-deprecating (‘Oh no, my Latin is awful — I just know a few useful phrases’), despite clearly being terrifyingly clever.Of late, he’s caused quite a stir by commuting from his home in Mayfair (he also has a rather lovely pile in Somerset) to Westminster in a grey 1968 Bentley that he bought at auction for £8,000 when he was just 22. Aged 11, he had turned the £50 into £3,500 and was terrorising the City with regular appearances at company AGMs.At one GEC shareholders’ meeting, he castigated the chairman about the company’s ‘pathetic dividend’.The Fife Multi-agency Underage Sexual Activity Protocol applies to all key agencies in Fife.
This work has been fully supported by the Child Protection Committee.
Sexual exploitation can also occur through the use of technology and without the child’s immediate recognition.
In other situations a young person may be passed for sex between two or more perpetrators or this may be organised exploitation (often by criminal gangs or organised groups).
The group, chaired by Karen Pedder, Team Manager, Child & Family Social Work Service, are working on a variety of actions which reflect the CPC Improvement Plan. To date the CPC have endorsed the Child Sexual Exploitation Strategy 2015-17.
Multi-agency guidance for practitioners will be published shortly to coincide with multi service awareness raising and training. National Guidance definition:- The sexual exploitation of children and young people is an often hidden form of child sexual abuse, with distinctive elements of exploitation and exchange.
