Oxfam sexual abuse scandal spreads to UK charity shops

The sexual abuse scandal engulfing Oxfam’s operations overseas has now extended to its charity shops in the UK, after its former head of safeguarding described the situation where adult volunteers working with child volunteers do not require criminal record checks as an “extraordinary loophole”.

In an in-depth interview on Channel 4 News, Helen Evans said that in the space of one month her team received three allegations of child abuse in its retail stores.
