Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd is urging young people, victims, their families and the whole community to give Ann Coffey MP their views about what more can be done to prevent child sexual exploitation in Greater Manchester.
Ms Coffey has been asked by Tony Lloyd to conduct an inquiry into responses to child sexual exploitation following the shocking Rochdale sexual grooming case.
Mr Lloyd said:
“This is one of the most important issues that face our communities and I really hope that people will come forward to Ann with their experiences. We’ve got a real chance here to make a difference to children’s lives not just in Greater Manchester but across the country.”
“This inquiry will, of course, look at the mistakes of the past but it will also look at the changes that have been made and what more can be done to keep our children safe. I urge people to give their views to this important inquiry.”
“I am grateful that Ann Coffey has agreed to carry out this inquiry as she has considerable expertise in the field.
Ms Coffey said:
“We need to make sure the whole community is engaged in this fight against child sexual exploitation and that the experience of victims and their families are taken seriously so that we can develop a proper response to child sexual exploitation in our community.”
