Interview with Emily Cherry

Over the past few weeks, the topic of conversation in society has noticeably shifted to something that has been a taboo for many years: child exploitation.

The BBC drama, ‘Three Girls' exploring the Rochdale Scandal has opened this conversation, and now more people than ever are researching more into this scandal, and other similar ones, and are being exposed to the atrocities that have been, and still are, committed unto children.

The Rochdale Scandal between 2008 and 2012 shown institutional failure as twelve men were convicted of running a child exploitation ring in the Greater Manchester town.

br /> The situation has changed in a big way since the Rochdale Scandal, with more (and better) protections in place for young people – but similar cases are still happening across the country.

On Generation You, James Gilmore and Chloe Combi interviewed Emily Cherry, the Head of Childline Young Campaigners at the NSPCC about child exploitation and how young people might not realise that they are being exploited.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
