star this property answer text <p>The Government values the role of Europol in helping law enforcement agencies coordinate investigations into serious and organised cross border crime and terrorism. That includes the European Counter Terrorism Centre (ECTC) which was set up in 2016 as an operations centre and hub of expertise for EU Member States at Europol. Since September 2017 the UK has embedded UK Police Officers within the ECTC and works closely with our European partners through the centre.</p><p>Information exchange between UK authorities and Europol is well-established and takes place on a daily and routine basis on a wide range of criminal activity. This includes information sharing to tackle the threat of terrorism and cooperation continues to assist UK efforts to tackle cross-border terrorist activity impacting on the UK.</p><p>We cannot comment specifically on the assistance that the Department has requested and received from the ECTC as this is operationally sensitive information.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is difficult to measure the number of children at risk of child sexual exploitation with confidence because methodologies vary and because most child sexual abuse remains unreported.</p><p>In its report, Measuring the Scale and Changing Nature of Child Sexual Abuse Child Sexual Exploitation, published in August 2018, the Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse refers to several studies which have sought to assess the number of children at risk of sexual exploitation in England using different methodologies and data sources. These include a survey of 100 local authorities in 2016 which identified 13,466 children at risk, and a study by the Office of the Children's Commissioner in 2012 which estimated 16,500 children to be at risk.</p><p>The Department for Education published statistics on “Characteristics of children in need: 2017/18: England” on 25 October 2018. These show nearly 20,000 assessments carried out by children’s services where child sexual exploitation was identified as being a factor that contributed to the child being in need. However, these figures count numbers of assessments, not number of children, so if a child has more than one assessment where child sexual exploitation is identified as a factor then they will be counted more than once in these figures.</p>
