It is rare to be allowed inside a children’s home to talk to sexual abuse victims.
They have been let down by adults they trust, so why should they trust anyone else?
Cordelia Lynch reports.
‘We had been granted a rare privilege, the chance to see inside a children’s home and hear first hand from the young girls inside.
They are living in a residential treatment centre for children who have been sexually exploited which is also registered as an independent special school.
The girls have had torturous journeys here, bounced from home to home, sometimes having to move after just a few days.
Some have been groomed for sex by gangs, others by family members.’
