Tackling child sexual abuse is a top priority for this Government. The Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation report published in March 2015 set out our response to the failures we saw in Rotherham and elsewhere, and we have since implemented an ambitious programme of reform to improve our response preventing and tackling sexual abuse of children.

We are making good progress on the programme of reform which reports on a bi-monthly basis to the Inter Ministerial Group on Child Sexual Abuse chaired by the Home Secretary. We intend to publish a full progress report in the near future.
