Child Trafficking Update
In total, 202 children have been identified as trafficked into and within the UK over the period 1 January 2011 to 15 September 2011. This figure includes referrals made to the National Referral Mechanism and referrals received by the Child Trafficking Advice and Information Line (CTAIL), operated by the NSPCC. The data used is current as of 15 September 2011. It should be noted that the data used is a ‘snapshot in time’ and some outstanding NRM decisions are yet to be made regarding the status of these potential victims of trafficking. Consequently, these figures will be subject to revision in future assessments following NRM decisions.
