Spot the difference!

Meg Munn MP is not one to stand back  on the issue of child exploitation as demonstrated by a visit  to support the work of agencies protecting vulnerable children, where is Cllr  Roger Stone, Martin Kimber,  the three local MPs and  the  local Councillors?

I suppose they have been told by Cllr  Emma Hoddinott not to attend.

I could find only one RMBC Councillor with the visit on his Twitter account, a damming indictment of the lack of concern or interest  from RMBC Councillors.

Working to protect children

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Meg Munn MP recently met police and social workers in South Yorkshire to find out about how a new Child Protection Unit is operating. Having worked for over twenty years in child protection before becoming an MP, and currently Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Child Protection, she was naturally interested to explore how they work on this serious issue.

The unit is based at Maltby Police station in Rotherham and has both police officers and social workers based together. They have a specific focus on working with children who are either being sexually exploited or are at risk of exploitation.

Meg said:

“Police and social workers have worked together for many years but developing an integrated service should bring new benefits. I wanted to learn the team’s views on how parliament and government can make a difference to their work. The preventative work being done by the unit is to be welcomed, as is their work to train and support local health and social care professionals.”

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Child Protection recently launched a parliamentary inquiry into the government’s family justice reforms proposed in the Children and Families Bill.

  1. Hold on a minute “Police and social workers have worked together for many years but developing an integrated service should bring new benefits. I wanted to learn the team’s views on how parliament and government can make a difference to their work. The preventative work being done by the unit is to be welcomed, as is their work to train and support local health and social care professionals.”

    If that’s the case, how come a vulnerable girl ended up dead? Has the preventative work only just sprung up since she died? Answers on a postcard please.
