Hampshire and Isle of Wight among Early Adopters of Independent Child Trafficking Guardianship Service

All local authorities within Wales, Greater Manchester, West Midlands Combined Authorities, East Midlands, Croydon, Hampshire and Isle of Wight have become Early Adopter Sites of Independent Child Trafficking Guardianship Service.

Independent Child Trafficking Guardians (ICTGs) are professionals who support children who have potentially been trafficked, and the role of an ICTG is outlined in Section 48 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and within the following interim guidance.

ICTGs will provide one-on-one support to trafficked and potentially trafficked children within the Early Adopter Sites where there is no-one with parental responsibility for that child.
