Children in the UK are experiencing an increased risk of exploitation. Statistics from the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) show that the number of child victims identified in the UK increased by 45% between 2018 to 2019. COVID-19 exacerbated this issue, with increased financial hardship, thousands of children out of school and youth homelessness on the rise. This needs to stop.
We are working with STOP THE TRAFFIK, to support their research into Child Exploitation in the UK and explore how different individuals’ and organisations’ perspectives vary on this issue. The aim of this research is to understand gaps in knowledge and perception between children, support providers and caregivers.
