Still at risk: A review of support for trafficked children
The Home Office commissioned us, along with the Refugee Council, to undertake a scoping review of the practical care arrangements for trafficked children and those who may have been trafficked. We published the findings in September.
Safeguarding Young People
This was a three-and-a-half-year research project into the issue of the maltreatment of young people aged 11 to 17. The project was undertaken in partnership by The Children’s Society, NSPCC and the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York with funding from the Big Lottery Research Grants Programme. It is the first study on this topic to have been undertaken in the UK.
The final report on the research presents findings from the study including interviews with young people, interviews and a survey of professionals, a policy study and an international literature review. It concludes with a set of key messages for future policy, practice and research.
