It will be for local determination what the arrangements cover, but they must set out how all children, including those at risk of child criminal exploitation, will be kept safe. In order to bring transparency about the activities undertaken, the safeguarding partners must publish a report at least once in every 12-month period, setting out what they have done as a result of the arrangements and how effective these arrangements have been in practice.</p><p>The Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 considered the def-inition of exploitation under the Act and found it is sufficiently flexible to meet a range of new and emerging forms of modern slavery.</p><p>In addition, there is an existing, published definition of child criminal exploi-tation in the Serious Violence Strategy.

In-line with one of the Review’s recommendations, Independent Child Trafficking Advocates have recently been renamed Independent Child Trafficking Guardians (ICTGs).</p><p>ICTGs are an additional source of advice and support for all trafficked children and somebody who can advocate on their behalf. The current service model provides one-to-one support for children who lack a figure of parental responsibility for them in the UK and an expert ICTG regional practice co-ordinator whose role will be to focus on children who do have a figure of parental responsibility for them in the UK. The ICTG regional practice co-ordinator works with statutory bodies including the police, social workers and the Criminal Justice System to foster effective multi-agency working to safeguard these vulnerable children.</p><p>The Government remains committed to rolling out ICTGs nationally with the service currently being available in one third of local authorities in England and Wales.The Government Response to the Independent Review was published on 9 July and is available: <br> <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-response-to-the-independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-response-to-the-independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>
