"A cause for optimism is the language skill of the UK’s immigrant communities. More than 1m UK school students have a mother tongue other than English, representing more than 300 languages. [...] Britain should view these bilingual youngsters as an asset rather than a problem."

Yet another example of someone in a position of authority deciding not to report child abuse allegations, in contravention of their own safeguarding policies. We need mandatory reporting.

Lambeth survivors to be provided with “swift and compassionate” redress. The borough will pay compensation to every former resident as they were all felt to be at risk, with victims of abuse receiving more.

Austerity not limited to statutory services, yet used most effectively to disrupt process for safeguarding children. Baby P effect merely highlights previous poor practice and over reaction by an ill-supported workforce. Let's not compare employment issues with children's lives!

Agreed. And services promoting work with CYP to avoid using 'cuts' narrative to apply criteria 'to wait for a child to commit a crime' before intervening!

A, 16,was arrested on Friday 6pm, interviewed 11pm, kept in a cell overnight and finally released on bail on Saturday 6pm. Why was a 16-year-old child subjected to arrest for failing to be possession of an Oyster card that entitles all London 16 yr olds in study, to free travel ?

Today I heard about a private landlord putting money on the electric metre, food in the fridge and providing new bed linen for a woman leaving refuge. There are good people out there (where you least expect to find them)😊

Criminal exploitation of children isn’t new. Youth workers (what’s left of them) and youth justice workers have known it and been grappling with it for years. CSE attracted the media and focused declining police/social care resources in one direction
