Rotherham sex abuse whistleblower to receive MBE

A Rotherham youth worker who helped lift the lid on the child exploitation scandal in the town is to receive her MBE today from the Queen.

Mrs Senior is being recognised for services to child protection in Rotherham, where she repeatedly raised concerns about girls being groomed and forced into prostitution, while she worked for the Risky Business youth service in the town.

As manager of the youth project, which was set up to work with vulnerable teens, she kept notes and details of the perpetrators of attacks on girls and passed information on to the authorities but claimed nothing was done.

Rotherham whistleblower Jayne Senior dedicates MBE to ‘courageous children’

The youth worker who helped expose the Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal has dedicated an MBE award for her work to the “courageous children” whose voices were ignored “but not anymore”.

The actions of Jayne Senior, who repeatedly raised concerns, and a national newspaper eventually led to a report which shocked the nation by laying bare the abuse hundreds of children were subjected to over more than 15 years.

Speaking after a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony, Mrs Senior said: “It’s quite a bitter-sweet award, yes I’m proud but I should never have had to do this and be here in the first place.

  2. Boo says:

    Well deserved

  3. fiferalfa says:

    Mrs Senior is now part of the council which is still unfit for purpose

    • Boo says:

      So why are the council investigating mrs senior on the complaints of 3 survivors that praised her a few months ago , people who work at riverside are curupt and I wouldn’t trust any of them. Rotherham has had enough of bad press and negativity our town will never move forward there’s 1400 voices to be heard not just a hand full

      • Curious George says:

        There’s more to come. RMBC are going to keep on manufacturing charges until they have slaked their thirst for revenge. Rotherham’s Bourbons who have learnt nothing and forgotten nothing. BTW do the survivors accusing Ms Senior happen to be on the council payroll now by any chance?

    • Taxman says:

      I’ve just passed the NCA off Wellgate bringing someone out. I’m just waiting for them to visit Riverside. They’ll get there eventually. I hope.

    • loudmouth says:

      Hence she doesn’t say much about CSE these days, mustn’t bite the hand, that feeds you!!!

  4. Congratulations The justice for the 1400+ has a long way to go…
    And it’s a shame that no one asked their local councillor for advice

  5. David says:

    Lauded by the establishment that failed. Joined the party that failed those girls and still is failing them. A tarnished bauble.

  6. Curious George says:

    Am I having deja vu? I thought she’d already got this award?

  7. S Thornton says:

    Still no declaration on who took the records out of her office. she knew who had the keys, as the boss, who would have asked next morning, “who broke into my office, and took Confidential records”, I find it odd that she has kept “stum”. Time to speak out. time to tell the truth and stop protecting people.

    • Curious George says:

      She hasn’t kept Stum. She has said (according to press reports) that the key holders were the janitor, Christine Broadhurst Brown and Kerry Byrne and that Broadhurst Brown ruled that the police should not be involved as there were no signs of a break in.
