WHISTLEBLOWER Jayne Senior will talk about her experiences fighting to expose child sex abuse when she gives a speech later this month as part of a course on corruption.
The former Risky Business co-ordinator will warn that Silence Is Consent during one of a series of sessions in the course organised by the Workers’ Educational Association.
Now offering support for abuse survivors at the Swinton Lock Activity Centre, Ms Senior (pictured) will tell how she was repeatedly knocked back in her attempts to blow the whistle on the issue.
The WEA’s seven-week Silence Is Consent course will looks at the whistleblowers who have uncovered wrongdoing in the NHS and local government in the UK.
As well as Ms Senior, it is hoped to feature other guests who have experience of whistleblowing.
The course will also feature ongoing cases of corruption across the UK in the NHS and local government, which have been exposed by whistleblowers.
The course begins on January 19 at The Unity Centre, St Leonard's Road, Rotherham, for seven sessions, all running from 1pm to 3pm.
