Call for information: Using ‘out-of-home’ care and secure facilities in response to child exploitation and trafficking

2021-03-05

To inform our Securing Safety research study, we are conducting a rapid review of literature to identify the extent to which the use of ‘out-of-home’ care and secure facilities in response to child exploitation and trafficking occurs in countries beyond the UK. We would be grateful for any relevant literature or examples of agencies/organisations involved in placement decisions, or the delivery of placements, for adolescents impacted by exploitation, crime and other forms of harm outside of their family homes. Please send any contribution to delphine.peace@beds.ac.uk by 23 April 2021.
