Jayne Pezzulo, who works for Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), together with Wendy Mason and Carmel Bartlett who both work for Doncaster Children’s Services Trust have been shortlisted as finalists in the National Working Group (NWG) awards.

The aim of the awards is to recognise and reward individuals or teams who have made significant, on-going contribution to tackling child sexual exploitation.

Christina Harrison, of RDaSH, said: “It’s fantastic that Jayne, Wendy and Carmel are shortlisted in this award. It’s a real credit to them and highlights the hard work they do helping to raise the profile of CSE and making people aware of the signs and symptoms to look out for and the action they can take.”

Paul Moffat, chief executive of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, said: “We are thrilled for the third year in a row Carmel, Wendy and Jayne’s hard work has been recognised nationally. Their work has been vital in raising awareness of CSE with young people in school and most importantly about what young people can do if they have any concerns about a friend.”

Jayne, Wendy and Carmel will travel to the awards ceremony in Nottingham on March 21.
