I have been very interested reading your blog and discovering news in relation to the Rotherham grooming scandal that isn’t generally reported in the wider press. Really is an excellent site.
I have been attempting to establish whether or not Rotherham council have a tough new approach to CSE. Sadly, they are still found to be wanting.
I thought you might be interested in the FOI request below which shows not only the continual rise of incidences of CSE, but also the abject failure of the council to monitor cases correctly. According to their response, they have no way of knowing how many new cases of CSE involving on street or group grooming there are without doing a manual search of paper records. The result being they have zero comprehension of the current situation and no way of knowing to what extent the serious problem persists. I would have expected them to know how many cases there were on a day by day basis.
In case you or your readership are interested in these findings, the FOI request can be seen here..
