Protecting Vulnerable Children

The results of an inquiry into child sexual exploitation by the Commons home affairs select committee have been released.  Findings show that vulnerable children are still being failed by the organisations and professionals meant to protect them. The committee made recommendations including:  assistance should be given to teachers to help them identify and support children who are at risk; the criminal justice system should be overhauled to improve the way it deals with children and there should be a greater awareness amongst professionals.
