Child Trafficking

Child trafficking is child abuse. Children are recruited, moved or transported and then forced to work or sold.

Children may be trafficked for:

  • sexual abuse
  • forced marriage
  • domestic servitude
  • forced labour
  • criminal activity such as pickpocketing

Many children are trafficked into the UK from abroad but children may also be trafficked around the UK.

Recent figures show that at least 10 children are trafficked every week in the UK.

The Camden Safeguarding Children Board is committed to tackling this appalling crime. This page contains information on our local multi-agency guidance, a local leaflet and links to training and available resources.
