child exploitation by gangs – the Government’s response

24 November 2011

Later today the Government is expected to publish its Child Sexual Exploitation Action Plan. The Government’s aim is to bring together the police, CPS, local safeguarding children boards, agencies, independent bodies and the voluntary sector in order to tackle this problem.

Emphasis is to be put on protecting children in care who are four times more likely to be victims of abuse. In order to do this councils will be asked to work together to prevent the trafficking of children within the UK.

These proposals will involve greater information sharing between different organisations and between different Councils. With current concerns regarding data security organisations will need to develop robust policies on what information to share and under what circumstances. These policies will need to strike a careful balance between ensuring that information is kept safe and secure but also that all relevant organisations have the information required to fully address potential exploitation and trafficking.
