Child sexual exploitation practice guide for child protection

This practice resource guide assists the crucial work of the Victorian Child Protection program, community service organisations (CSOs) and Aboriginal community-controlled organisations (ACCOs) in preventing and responding effectively to child sexual exploitation.
