Course Overview

This online course focuses on the specific challenges of accommodating victims of trafficking and separated children seeking asylum. Based on ECPAT UK’s influential research on trafficked, unaccompanied and separated children going missing from care, this course will give you an understanding of the issue and why children go missing, and will support you with practical tools to respond in line with the best practice.

This course is ideal for those involved in the care of children at risk of trafficking, such as Looked After Child and fostering social workers, foster carers, care home staff and missing persons practitioners. It will provide participants with updated knowledge and skills to better protect and respond to at risk and missing children.

 

Module 1: Providing safe accommodation and care for child victims of trafficking

Module 2: Preventing and responding to child victims of trafficking going missing
