On 31 July 2015 new human trafficking legislation came into force under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This legislation covers both migrant and UK children trafficked into and within the UK and can assist with victim identification and the National Referral Mechanism process. Ensure that you are able to safeguard and protect the vulnerable by means of the new powers contained with in the Act.
Child trafficking is the recruitment and movement of children for the purpose of exploitation. It is a form of child abuse and requires a child protection response.
