The welfare of the young people who used Kids Company services continues to be of primary concern and we are working closely with local authorities to make sure they have access to the support and services they require. Under the Children Act 2004 local authorities have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children in need of protection, including trafficked children. Under these arrangements, looked after children are provided with access to all their needs be they in relation to education, accommodation, psychological or health. Local authorities co-ordinate the arrangements for each looked after child to ensure they are safeguarded and have their welfare promoted.
