Sara Rowbotham – Individual Award Nominee – 2017

Sara Rowbotham was a social worker in Rochdale who was one of the few to pick up on the organised sexual exploitation of young girls in the local area. After fighting for years to get other statutory services to pick up on this abuse Sara was forced to whistleblow, which bought serious consequences for her career. This year Sara was portrayed in the BBC drama 3 Girls, which has done further work in raising awareness of child sexual exploitation.
