Dear Blaby District Council,
Please find below an FOI request relating to the trafficking of children and their subsequent care.
Unseen is providing safe accommodation for potentially trafficked foreign migrant children. The service has been developed with local authority, police and governmental partners and is Ofsted registered. Through running this service we have become aware of some systemic barriers that fundamentally prevent children from accessing the care and protection they need.
We would like to know, for each local authority in the UK:
1. How many potentially trafficked children you have identified in the last 12 months?
2. How many of these children have been non-UK Nationals?
3. Of the children identified what care placements have been sought? (foster, secure, supported accommodation, children’s home)
4. How many children in this cohort have subsequently a) remained in their original placement b) absconded c) are considered missing persons
This information is being requested from each Local Authority area in the UK.
