Tackling child trafficking in the UK
The Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) has published a report on steps being taken by the UK authorities to combat human trafficking. Recommendations include: take steps to address the problem of children going missing from local authority care; improve the exchange of information on missing unaccompanied children between police forces and local authorities; train all professionals working with child victims of trafficking to recognise and respond appropriately to their individual needs and the best interests of the child.
