ECPAT UK and The Children’s Society run a partnership project supporting boys and young men who have been trafficked to the UK. The project draws on the successful model of peer support for trafficked girls and young women pioneered by ECPAT UK.

Since 2013, the project has enabled boys and young people to meet together and access the following support: 

  • Weekly peer support groups
  • Life skills programme 
  • Creative projects
  • Educational mentoring with The Refugee Support Network
  • ESOL support classes
  • Support in accessing compensation
  • Social activities 
  • Residentials
  • Individual support plan and signposting for further support 

Travel expenses and food are provided for each session. 

If you would like to refer a young person who may be a victim of trafficking, please note the following criteria: 

  • Aged 15-23
  • Practitioner has concerns about trafficking
