Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee special Select Committee 12th March 2015

On Thursday 12th March 2015, the Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee will be holding a special Select Committee meeting focusing on Child Sexual Exploitation.

The purpose of the meeting is to consider how the Warwickshire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) and other key partners have responded to the recommendations outlined in the Professor Jay Report (Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham (1997 – 2013).

The Select Committee shall also seek to assure itself that effective partnership working around CSE is taking place and that the children and young people of Warwickshire are being adequately protected from CSE.

Representatives from the WSCB, the Police, the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, the NHS and the County Council will be informing the Select Committee on how they work both independently and collectively on the Board to tackle the issue of CSE within Warwickshire.

The safeguarding of all children remains a top priority for the Council and partner agencies alike – this Select Committee shall serve to assure members what is currently being done, what can additionally be done and what proactive steps are being taken to protect children from CSE.

The meeting, open for members of the public to attend, will run from 10.00-14.00 and will be held in Committee Room 2, Shire Hall, Warwick.
