Child Trafficking in Glasgow: The Journey So Far


Rigby P, Murie S & Ball M (2012) Child Trafficking in Glasgow: The Journey So Far. Glasgow Child Protection Committee.

Two years after the publication of the Glasgow Child Protection Committee practice guidance for child trafficking, an audit of all cases known to the social work child protection team was undertaken. Since the commencement of a research and development programme in 2008, until September 2011, the child protection team have received referrals and enquiries regarding one hundred children for whom there were concerns about trafficking. During this period, it has also become apparent that the needs of trafficked children have to be assessed and addressed amongst a greater understanding of the vulnerabilities of children on the move who arrive in Glasgow.
