Nearly 250 children are “at risk” of being sexually exploited across Greater Manchester, the BBC has learned.

Figures show that out of 246 children being dealt with by local councils, 111 were deemed to be at high risk of being sexually exploited.

Rochdale Council had the highest number of children at risk, but said tackling sexual exploitation was one of its top priorities.

      We are backwards in protecting and improving the lives of children. I saved to many other sites to checks out. I didn’t understand what grooming was at first. So glad I clicked on link. Have you met TED Talk my new BFF? Awesome.
      I’ll write off line have a few other tidbits.

      • Angel,
        I was blown away yesterday by talks on Autism Spectrum. I was clueless about 99% of the information. My mind started working 100 miles per hour thinking about how the ways of learning could reach any student with learning difficulties. Good thing the videos pack so much info in 20 minutes or less. Have a great day.

      • I’m very confident Ted has what you need. I found many talks on Mental Illness to go back to watch. I signed up for the weekly newsletter and a new world has opened to me. My mind has expanded immensely and I never multitask while watching.That really tells you something.
