Fairfax K & Rigby P (2011) Local Authority Pilots of the London Safeguarding Trafficked Children Guidance and Toolkit. London Councils. London Safeguarding Children Board.
Following the UK Government’s ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings in December 2008, a National Referral Mechanism (NRM) was implemented for adults and children trafficked into and within the UK. To accompany this mechanism the London Safeguarding Children Board developed an assessment framework and guidance to support practitioners and policy makers working with suspected victims of child trafficking. This framework and guidance was piloted as the London SCB London Safeguarding Trafficked Children Toolkit 2009 in 12 local authority areas across the UK and monitored by a national monitoring group consisting of representatives of various interested stakeholders. The monitoring included three short questionnaires for the 12 pilot local authorities and corresponding police forces, with additional statistics provided by UK Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC).
