Every year, over 950 children are trafficked in the UK and the responsibility for protecting these children rests with Local Safeguarding Children's Boards (LSCB's). However, although there are a number of individuals who have a role to play in supporting young people and preventing the trafficking of children, there are many challenges facing these organisations. Challenges such as:
- Children and young people finding it hard to disclose information about their traffickers
- The difficulty in being able to identify trafficking cases
- Failure in being able to respond to the needs presented with trafficking cases.
Our training provides professionals with the underpinning knowledge to be confident when dealing with victims of trafficking, implementing best practice, and ensuring the victim is safeguarded against further risk of significant harm.
Individuals that work with children, young people and families will benefit from attending the Managing a Suspected Case of Child Trafficking course.
