Mordaunt confirms she will meet with police to discuss the Oxfam scandal.
I’ve held meetings with charity bosses, regulators and experts over the last few days and, tomorrow, I will be meeting with the National Crime Agency.
While investigations have to be completed and any potential criminals prosecuted accordingly, what is clear is that the culture that allowed this to happen needs to change and it needs to change now.
Some more on Mordaunt’s comments. She has told the summit:
The sexual exploitation of vulnerable people – vulnerable children – is never acceptable. But, when it is perpetrated by people in positions of power – people we entrust to help and protect – it rightly sickens and disgusts and it should compel us to take action.
The recent revelations about Oxfam, not solely the actions perpetrated by a number of those staff, but the way the organisation responded to those events, should be a wakeup call to the sector.
