New programme to protect children at risk of exploitation

The Department for Education has launched a national programme to provide specialist support and boost protection for children most at risk of criminal or sexual exploitation.

Every council in England will be able to apply for bespoke support from the scheme to tackle specific threats in their area, bringing social workers, police forces, schools, health services and charities together to improve how they respond to cases of exploitation, and learn from what works.
