This chapter makes two key points about service delivery for sexually exploited children and young people. It argues that while there have been some helpful developments in policy and practice that raise the profile of sexually exploited children and young people's needs, these have mainly been focused on child-protection agendas. The chapter also argues that, as a consequence of the focus on child protection, sexually exploited children and young people are seen first and foremost as victims of abuse. It provides an analysis of sexual exploitation that does not reify the young person's experiences of victimization, but which locates ‘the problem’ of sexual exploitation as a social-welfare problem.

Keywords:   service delivery, sexually exploited children, child protection, victims of abuse, sexual exploitation, social-welfare problem
