Following the findings of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham by Professor Alexis Jay; Rotherham MBC responded to the immediate needs of victims by increasing the capacity of the voluntary sector to provide additional post abuse support. The Council is now in the process of developing longer term proposals for an integrated ‘open door’ model of flexible and accessible service provision for victims of CSE. This is in tandem with RMBC refreshing its overall multi agency CSE ‘Prevent, Protect and Pursue’strategy.To support this aim the Council, led by Public Health, instructed the University of Salford to provide research governance of the needs analysis. As an academic partner. the University worked alongside voluntary and community organisations commissioned by RMBC, to gain access to the population of Rotherham with a specific focus on under-represented minority groups.
