In December 2012, Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland (also known as the Care Inspectorate) commissioned the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS) to conduct a 3-month research project to investigate the sexual exploitation of looked after children in Scotland. This report draws together research related to sexual exploitation of looked after children in Scotland from four strands of this study and from earlier work done by others. This information will inform the work of the Care Inspectorate. After a short introduction, this report considers previous research. It describes progress and findings from each strand of the research: e-Delphi, case audits, rapid response survey, and secondary data. It concludes with ‘Answering the Research Questions’, which draws together findings from earlier sections and outlines the implications of this study for the Care Inspectorate, for CELCIS and for the sector more widely. The questions concern issues such as prevalence, grooming, links to going missing, and regulation. (Edited publisher abstract)
