I welcome this internal review into the Home Office into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.
It is clear that the Home Office knew about child sexual exploitation in Rotherham from 2002. The report also highlights the knowledge of the Local Authority and South Yorkshire Police of the abuse. Why, when so many in authority knew the scale and severity of this crime did it take until 2014, with the publication of the Jay report, for a large scale investigation to occur? How many lives could have been protected if swift action had been taken a decade before?
In her speech, Sarah Champion, Member of Parliament for Rotherham, will call for the Government to tackle the demand from sex buyers by criminalising paying for sex and by legally holding prostitution advertising websites to account. Sarah will highlight that paying for sex is a form of violence against women and girls.
Sarah Champion MP is seeking a Senior Secretary for her Rotherham Constituency Office. The successful candidate will be responsible for ensuring that very high standards of service are provided to the MP including managing her diary and the smooth day-to-day running of the offices in both Rotherham and London. This is a fast paced role and Sarah is looking for an exceptional individual with the need for high attention to detail and a professional approach to all aspects of the work to take on a demanding yet rewarding role. Most of the work will be done remotely with Sarah due to the nature of her role.
