On Wednesday this week public officials and Warwickshire Police called a joint summit to consider the checks and balances currently in place that form part of the safeguarding procedures for children in Warwickshire.

“Whilst we have every confidence in our robust safeguarding teams, our police force and social workers, it is vital for each and every one of us to learn the lessons of Rotherham to ensure we protect and safeguard our young people,” said Cllr Izzi Seccombe.

Further discussion on preventing child sex exploitation will take place at Public Scrutiny Meeting on Monday 15th September.
