Make Sara Rowbotham an OBE

This petition had 874 supporters

Sara Rowbotham is the woman who blew the whistle on the Rochdale grooming scandal. She spent years collating information and evidence, taken ng it to the relevant bodies to investigate further (police, social services etc) and nobody listened. She was the only person at the time who believed the girls involved and was prepared to do anything about it. The recent BBC1 documentary showed how bad the situation was and how the victims were originally viewed with contempt and deemed to be acting of their own free will. Following the Rochdale trial Sara was no longer allowed to be involved with any child grooming cases and was eventually made redundant. Shocking treatment again by the authorities.

I believe that Sara Rowbotham should be properly recognised for what she did and feel an OBE is the way to do this. I hope you agree and sign this petition to make this happen
