Local authorities receive significant funding to support the well-being of children in their areas. They are responsible for commissioning appropriate services and monitoring the cost and quality of these services. Local authorities have arrangements in place to ensure that all children in need, including those that may have been trafficked, are assessed and receive appropriate support. Where children are alone or at risk of significant harm, they will come into the care system and be entitled to the full range of support that all looked-after children receive. These children are allocated a social worker who will assess their needs, including for specialist care and support, and draw up a care plan which sets out how the authority intends to respond to the full range of the child’s needs.
