I just have one Jay (OBE) report , which is based on 66 test cases, and the forecast is a conservative estimate of 1400 children.
JT was Director of Children’s services for arguments sake for around half of that time and she received an OBE, how many children did she fail.
And I see one person who has been around since the time of the report base(1997-), receives MBE, never spoke out once whilst in a position to do so.
Let’s see all the places and junctions when it was possible to have done so.
●1: Dr Heal report 2002-2006
The report said at the time some of the main perpetrators appeared to be pimps and drugs dealers, including an Asian family in Rotherham and a handful of people from the Afro-Caribbean community in Sheffield.
The report added: “However, it must be emphasised that these are a handful of men, from sizeable communities where the vast majority are law-abiding citizens who wholeheartedly disapprove of the actions of a few.
“These are the actions of a few unscrupulous career criminals and whole communities should not be stereotyped on this basis.”

The Dr Heal report 2006.
Rotherham: “whilst there is no regular on street prostitution scene, the issue of sexual exploitation in the town remains significant”.
One worker who had been working in Rotherham for nearly 30 yrs said that Asian men, particularly taxi drivers, have been involved in the exploitation of young women through out that period.(were they just a means of transport, or perpetrators, juries still out, and is this an actual stereotype of a racial element (simply taxi driver equals Pakistani)).
Gleaned (kalinski, SYP 2006) from the report and it appears that even the PCC’s Report (Drew report 1997-2016) correlates pretty much the same stats.
The four types of abuse:
“Child on child” offending around a third.
“Stranger flasher” offending around a fifth.
“Familial offending” and “domestic violence”
And in some instances victim was raped by more than one offender. (Kalinski)
“Girls in the grip of pimps” that up to 40 girls involved in “highly organised” network of pimps.
Risky Business around 40-50 girls at risk or involved in exploitation.
●2: RLSC Board.
2.8 Serious case review, from 4 only one qualifies for serious review.
From the minutes of the safeguarding board 2006, all inclusive of all the failing subjects.
5 sexual exploitation forum, surprise surprise.
●3: OBE mmm…and an MBE.
So 2006 comes to an end, but what happened in 2007 beggars belief.
“Joyce Thacker, Senior Head of Service has received an OBE for her work with young people”.
●4: LG awards.
2008 council is award winning for children’s services, following the directors OBE, who receives this!
“This award is a credit to everyone working for a whole range of organisations with children and young people across Rotherham,” said Sonia Sharp, of Rotherham Council. “It is great to see the innovative ways that people have found to involve kids.” (involve kids in what)
ROTHERHAM youngsters have the best help and support in the country, after the borough scooped a top prize at a national awards ceremony.
●5. Childrens and young people’s services.
7. Proposals and details.
○118 contacts, all of them dealt with accordingly.
○There are currently no children subject to a child protection plan due to issues of sexual exploitation.
●6. December 2009
The minister of state for young people and families serves the council with an improvement notice for its children’s safeguarding services. It is lifted in January 2011.

●7. Risky Business closed 2009.
●8. Something Rattled RMBC’s cage in late 2011 and an ultimatum given and by early 2012 it was game over for RMBC, but by whom!
Why am I doing this, the list of victims (survivors) only reflects at best Dr Heal’s findings. Approximately around a hundred have come forward.
There are many victims their lives may have moved on but the memories for some will be etched on many people’s conscience, I ask them to come forward. Some will have confided in subsequent partners, I ask them to come forward.
Some will be in such a position that they will need a special approach of anonymity, I ask you all to pressure your local MP’s, if they always debate they should have the same right to a private life, then so should the victims and they need this privilege.
Without the people coming forward the NCA can only read pieces of paper or maybe at best link the papers together.
What makes the situation worse, victims need so much help.
