An independent report into Rochdale Borough Council's response to issues around child sexual exploitation has been published.
The report follows an independent review of the council's internal processes and procedures. It was commissioned by the council's chief executive, Jim Taylor, in June 2012 following the conviction of 9 men from Rochdale and Oldham for grooming offences.
The review, carried out by AKA Limited, involved face to face interviews with past and present members of staff and an examination of the authority's children's services, licensing and legal departments.
The Independent Reviewing Officer report is in relation to child sexual exploitation issues in Rochdale Borough Council during the period 2006-2013.|
