star this property answer text <p> </p><p>In January 2014 the Home Office announced proposals to trial specialist, <br>independent advocates for trafficked children which is due to begin this <br>summer. This trial forms part of the Government's work to eradicate modern day <br>slavery and as such there are no plans for this trial to be extended to <br>unaccompanied children. <br><br>The Child Trafficking Advocate will be fully independent from the local <br>authority, but will need to work with the existing structures around the Child <br>Trafficking Victim, such as children's services, education, criminal justice <br>system and immigration system.<br><br>The advocate role is intended to deliver the best outcomes for children. The <br>advocate's role will include the following activities but this is not an <br>exhaustive list and we expect the advocate to respond to the specific needs of <br>the child. <br><br>• being a consistent point of contact for the Child Trafficking Victim;<br>• assisting the local authority to assess the needs of the Child Trafficking <br>Victim as a victim of trafficking, thereby promoting the safety and wellbeing <br>of the Child Trafficking Victim (in particular in light of the risk of <br>re-trafficking);<br>• making recommendations for referrals to other services (e.g. mental health <br>services) to ensure the Child Trafficking Victim receives educational, medical, <br>practical and legal support they need and deserve;<br>• accompanying the Child Trafficking Victim to certain meetings - e.g. with an <br>immigration lawyer;<br>• supporting the Child Trafficking Victim in any age assessment process;<br>• supporting the Child Trafficking Victim in overcoming language and cultural <br>barriers;<br>• supporting witnesses through the criminal justice system;<br>• supporting looked after children and children in need through the care <br>system, in particular in safety planning, age assessment and future planning;<br>• assisting the local authority to plan for the Child Trafficking Victim's <br>future and receive any compensation that they may be entitled to;<br>• helping prevent the Child Trafficking Victim from facing further exploitation <br>or harm from traffickers (and the risks of going missing);<br>• providing advice on immigration, criminal justice and welfare matters to the <br>Child Trafficking Victim and arranging effective legal representation;<br>• involvement in the key decisions relating to the Child Trafficking Victim <br>(but final decisions would remain the responsibility of the local authority or <br>Home Office, where relevant).<br><br>The Home Office is commissioning an independent evaluation of the trial which <br>will report six months after the trial commences. The evaluation will include <br>the terms of reference for the trial.</p><p> </p>
