Blundering council staff ‘forgot’ suspected child abuse victims

Hundreds of suspected child abuse victims were “forgotten” by council staff and wrongly left waiting several weeks to be assessed by social workers, officials admitted.
Mistakes by agency staff at Peterborough City Council left cases involving 230 vulnerable children not being passed on to social services for a month, an inquiry found.

The council receives about 200 referrals of children to social services per week, with at least half usually referred to social workers.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
