Historic child abuse claims

For expert help with historic child abuse claims

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

Switalskis Solicitors act on behalf of a number of survivors of child sexual exploitation which took place in Rotherham. The claims are being investigated following the publication of a report into child sexual exploitation by the Home Affairs Select Committee in 2013. Subsequent media coverage led by The Times revealed a number of serious failings in Rotherham Council’s handling of the situation.

In 2014 Professor Alexis Jay OBE’s report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham revealed a problem far more widespread and greater in scale than had been revealed before.
