Rotherham Council commissioners ‘not making a difference’ to child safety
The commissioners brought in to run Rotherham Council have not made a difference to child protection, the town’s Labour MP has claimed.
Sarah Champion’s comments follow the closure of a children’s home in October following a critical Ofsted inspection.
The government said the commissioners, appointed after a damning report into child abuse, were making “progress”.
The Woodview review found young people were poorly assessed and risks of them being exposed to child sexual exploitation were not always recognised.
