Hundreds of trafficked children are disappearing from the care system

Government and social services departments are accused of failing to protect victims

This article was published four months ago by The Guardian but is bound to be true still today:

  • at least 300 juveniles identified as trafficked have disappeared from local authority care over the past three years
  • the NSPCC had dealt with 549 trafficked children in the past three-and-a-half years
  • a policy document by the Conservatives in 2008 estimated that “over half of trafficked children disappear from social services”
  • the Home Office said it took the issue extremely seriously and that it remainded “core” police business.
