Reducing the Threat of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and the Harm to Victims

Why this is a priority

Preventing and tackling CSE in all its forms is the key priority for RMBC and SYP. CSE has a lifelong impact on its victims, and therefore, children, young people and their families must have confidence in Rotherham's multi-agency approach to prevention, support and bringing perpetrators to justice. The coming period will continue to see an increase in investigations and prosecutions, and ongoing activity by SYP and the National Crime Agency (NCA) may trigger further historic reporting which will require a full partnership response. Our success in tackling CSE has a profound link to the reputation of the Council and SYP and the public's confidence in the services we provide as a Safer Rotherham Partnership.
