“A vile crime” – Telford & Wrekin Council
T&W Council offered this statement on the report that came out yesterday highlighting the failings of organisations relating to the Child Sexual Exploitation.
“We apologise wholeheartedly to victims and survivors for the pain they have gone through and thank them for sharing their experiences with the Inquiry, which must have been incredibly difficult to do.
Child sexual exploitation is a vile crime that disgusts us and all right thinking people.
The Independent Inquiry acknowledges we have made significant improvements in recent years. We are working very hard, day in and day out, to provide the best possible support for victims of this crime. We will continue to work alongside and listen to victims and survivors.
Telford & Wrekin Council commissioned the report that dates back to 1989 and accept the Inquiry’s recommendations, many of which we are already carrying out.”
The council have also stated that they are not offering interviews or answering follow-up questions at this time.
