One of the local authorities we recruit for, Rotherham, is quite literally transforming the way it handles child sexual exploitation (CSE) with the launch of its Evolve service. 

Evolve is a multi-agency specialist team consisting of social workers, a child sexual exploitation nurse, police officers, a children’s social care operational manager, business support staff as well as professionals from Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation (Pace) and Barnardo’s. 

Centrally located opposite Rotherham Town Hall, Evolve will give the best response to and safeguard children affected by CSE. It’s essentially a wrap-around support service to protect children and their family. 

The building includes a suite of police interview rooms, with comfortable sofas to help put victims at ease; police incident rooms where large scale operations will be led from and a medical room, where specialist CSE nurses will be able to help treat victims and survivors of CSE. There is also a kitchen and shower area to help reassure victims and survivors.

Emma Jackson, who was abused by a sex ring in Rotherham, commented:

"This is such a great idea and how I wish it had existed for me when I was a teenager and a victim of CSE. I had to go from police station to social worker to health clinic, all in different places and it was a scary ordeal. I have no doubt that this new way of working and this one stop shop, if you like, can only be a good thing.”

Rotherham Council Leader Cllr Chris Read said: "Today marks another important step forward in the way we deal with child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. New facilities that help our multi-agency staff give the best possible service to victims, survivors, those at risk and their families.”

We are currently looking for an experienced and dedicated social worker to work full time within a child sexual exploitation team based in Rotherham. You can see our latest vacancies by visiting our dedicated Rotherham webpage
