The Mayor

MOPAC is working with the London Safeguarding Children Board to ensure that issues of child sexual exploitation are addressed across London. Please see http://www.londonscb.gov.uk/procedures/supplementary_procedures/ for details.

MOPAC has also developed a rape action plan which includes a significant amount of planned activity around prevention of sexual violence and abuse.
