About CAAGE: the Campaign Against Adult Grooming

Victims of adult grooming have no legal protection in the UK. Children do. There’s some support for gay men. But unless there’s another crime committed such as fraud or assault, in law the victims of adult grooming don’t exist.

And that’s just how the groomers like it. Any attempt at retaliation, or, more importantly, warning others, are likely to land victims in hot water. UK law needs changing.

Victims NEED to see positive change as results of the mess the groomers leave in their wake. We need to find ways to prevent future victims from falling foul to these predators, and send a clear message


Started in 2018, this campaign aims to changing attitudes on behalf of victims and about abusers, to challenge – and change – the law, and offer support to victims. In 2019 counselling psychologist Wendy Gregory joined CAAGe.

Along the way, we’ve learned and learning increasingly more about grooming.
