Responding to child sexual exploitation in Rotherham

The focus of our work

Our response to child sexual exploitation is across some key themes, and alongside partners:

  • Together we are working to prevent child exploitation. By raising awareness in communities and educating young people around healthy relationships, we can help people detect signs of abuse
  • Keeping children and young people safe is our top priority. Together we will protect children who are at risk of sexual exploitation, including victims and survivors
  • Together we pursue perpetrators of child sexual exploitation which leads to prosecutions of those responsible
  • We are providing more support for victims and survivors of sexual exploitation. Investing millions in support services, and across children’s services generally
  • Ensuring that victims and survivors, and their families participate in services, so their voices are heard
