Our new report ‘I don’t feel human’ examines the extent and the impact of destitution on children and young people. In recent years, our projects have witnessed an alarming rise in the number of destitute children, young people and families accessing our services in desperate need of support. In this report, we recommend that the government implement certain care provisions to ensure that children are given the support and protection they need.

Still at risk - full report

Too many trafficked children are not being adequately protected by the agencies that are supposed to be supporting them. Our report, jointly produced with the Refugee Council and funded by the Home office, found that there have been some improvements with help for trafficked children. Yet far too many opportunities to protect them are being missed because of a culture of doubt and suspicion among professionals.
