Missing People is partnering with ECPAT UK, which campaigns against child trafficking and child expolitation, to deliver an innovative project aimed at improving the local response to child trafficking and all forms of modern slavery and exploitation.

Funded by the Home Office’s Child Trafficking Protection Fund, the ground-breaking Partnership Against Child Trafficking Project (PACT) will provide a specialist consultancy service to four UK local authorities in order to improve localised responses to child trafficking. 

ECPAT UK and Missing People, alongside expert partners Cordis Bright, will focus on improving the response to children at risk of trafficking, children who have been trafficked and those who are at risk of going missing.

The PACT Project, which will run as a pilot until March 2019, will work collaboratively with the four local authorities and consult with children affected by these issues.  It will enhance the knowledge, skills and confidence of professionals involved in providing services and caring for trafficked and exploited children.

Chloe Setter, Head of Advocacy, Policy & Campaigns at ECPAT UK, said: “We are extremely excited to be heading this original and much-needed project that aims to improve multi-agency working at a local level. Together with our partners Cordis Bright and Missing People, we will deliver a service that helps local authorities raise their standards on slavery, trafficking and exploitation and, ultimately, helps to protect children from harm.”

Susannah Drury, Director of Services and Advocacy at Missing People, said: “We are pleased to be working with ECPAT UK on this vital project. Sadly children who go missing are too often at risk of trafficking and the response and support they receive is vital to ensure they are not exploited or harmed.”
