FOI Request - Child Sexual Exploitation
(1) the number of incidents in the last four years (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) where it was suspected that children living in care homes might have fallen victim to prostitution and/or sexual exploitation.
(2) the age and sex of each child suspected of having fallen victim to prostitution and/or sexual exploitation.
(3) brief details of each incident.
The total suspected cases during the period requested is two. We would certainly not provide any circumstantial detail under FOI as the low number could lead to the identification of the individuals concerned, and our overriding priority is the protection of these children.
