Child criminal exploitation

Action for Children has published a review of child criminal exploitation across the UK. The review explores the scale and nature of the criminal exploitation of children and includes insight from the lived experiences of children, parents and professionals. Key learning highlights: the need for a clear and consistent definition of the criminal exploitation of children; tensions between the criminal justice system and child protection, with the criminalisation of exploited children ; and difficulties in identifying, preventing and responding to exploitation. The review calls for a single, cohesive legal code designed to tackle the criminal exploitation of children.
