Child sexual exploitation is also to be prioritised as a “national threat.” A national helpline will also be set up to enable professionals to report bad practice. “It is not just about introducing new policies. It is about making sure that the professionals we charge with protecting our children – the council staff, police officers and social workers – do the jobs they are paid to do”, the Prime Minister David Cameron said. The crime of “wilful neglect” would be extended to cover children’s social care and education. Victims, survivors groups, police chiefs, council leaders, child protection experts, and health and social care provider will participate to a dedicated summit in Downing Street.
