Scandal of potential Birmingham child sexual exploitation victims NOT being recorded in city figures
Children from across the UK falling victim to abuse after being placed in Birmingham care homes are NOT being counted in the city’s official CSE figures. The youngsters are classed as ‘out of borough kids’ and their ordeals are only officially recorded on a Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) register by their home authority. Critics claim the system means the full picture of CSE in the city is being skewed, with social workers and police often unaware of the presence of victims in Birmingham.
