Every Child Protected Against Trafficking UK (ECPAT UK) has released a report which hears from children who have experienced modern slavery. Findings from research workshops, a scoping review and a call for practice evidence include: barriers to positive outcomes were seen as structural, systemic and discriminatory; and young people often described the negative impact of immigration experiences as worse than the experiences of exploitation. The report calls for the government to ensure mechanisms are in place for the participation of children in policies and interventions that affect them, such as providing child-friendly information and developing meaningful consultation with young people.
