Human Trafficking

A National Referral Mechanism for the identification and support of human trafficking victims was implemented in the UK in 2009 following the ratification of the Council of Europe (2005) trafficking convention. Since then it has been criticised for its failure to adequately take into account the specific vulnerabilities of children and for its operation through a predominantly immigration focussed lens. This chapter explores why child trafficking identification and support in the UK is not primarily located within existing safeguarding frameworks; it proposes a model utilising present child focused expertise in an integrated child protection system.
