The independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Telford
Telford & Wrekin Council commissioned and funded the independent inquiry into non-recent child sexual exploitation in 2018.
The independent inquiry looked at practices dating back to 1989, as well as practices dating from when Telford & Wrekin Council was created in 1998.
The findings of the inquiry
In July 2022 the independent inquiry, led by a former High Court Judge and expert panel published its report. The inquiry chair endorsed our progress since 2016 and we immediately accepted all of the recommendations, many of which were already being delivered.
We also announced we would be working with leading campaigners, with lived experience of child sexual exploitation, to implement the recommendations alongside our partners in police and health.
