On the 11th July 2016 children were failed again. Five girls who were sexually exploited, intimidated and subjected to “appalling violence” in Coventry were at risk for too long, a review has found. There were “a number of occasions” when the girls made current or historic allegations about sexual assaults.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident and children are being failed time and time again. As a training provider that offers Safeguarding Children this subject interests me and while looking into the failings I came across a FANTASTIC article written by the NSPCC
I loved it so much I have put it into a blog! Help me to support the growth of safeguarding awareness in the UK by sharing this blog.
