Child Sexual Exploitation is a major child protection issue across the UK.

Vulnerable young girls and boys are groomed and then abused, leaving them traumatised and scarred for life.

The Sunrise Team works on the front line in Rochdale, Heywood, Middleton and the Pennines, reaching out to young people at risk in the community. Our specially trained staff help children to break free of exploitative relationships, and ensure offenders are brought to justice.

If you or somebody you know is in immediate danger or needs urgent help please dial 999
