This chapter details the responses of one Scottish city to the emergence of human trafficking as a challenging and unknown area of child protection work. A candid description of early developments, learning opportunities and mistakes provides an indication of the challenging environment child protection professionals faced. Drawing on years of experience and a commitment to a child-centred approach quickly led to a conclusion that the needs of children who had been exploited through trafficking did not differ significantly from other abused children. The chapter details how experienced child professionals have felt excluded from the identification and decision making environment for particularly vulnerable children.
