Abstract

Report of a short study commissioned by the Care Inspectorate to investigate Sexual Exploitation of Looked After Children in Scotland.

Child sexual exploitation within society is of great concern. Sexual exploitation is something which tends to be hidden and official data is scarce and may underestimate the scale of the issue. Looked after children are a diverse group and their risk of being sexually exploited can depend on a range of factors. The report found that children and young people who have experience of the care system can be particularly at risk.

This report gives us urgent insight and raises critical questions about the sexual exploitation of a vulnerable group and the information from this study will strengthen inspection activity across all the relevant services.
