Is the East Riding of Yorkshire Council the Clapham Junction of officers who are “connected” to child abuse failings by Local Authorities?
Pam Allen, at best was unaware of 1,400 children being abused at Rotherham Council, despite the fact that she was Director of Safeguarding between 2004 and 2009. She left in 2009 to join ERYC as Head of Children and Young People’s Support and Safeguarding Services. She left ERYC in 2017.
Alison Michalska was Director of Children, Family and Adult Services at ERYC up to 2013. Since then she has been the Corporate Director for Children and Adults at Nottingham City Council and last week it was announced that she will leave in November.
Today the BBC announce the failings of Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council of Children in Care in Nottingham.
ERYC Cover Up
Given the conduct of certain senior officers and Councillors during my three years as an Independent ERYC Councillor, I have always believed that there is a child abuse cover-up at ERYC.
