Independent Child Trafficking Guardians (ICTGs) are currently operational in one third of all local authorities in England and Wales.

Government has welcomed the findings of the Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, which included a specific set of recommendations relating to the wider roll out of ICTGs. In-line with the Government’s response, published in July 2019, we are currently considering the Review’s recommendations on ICTG and will provide a further update to Parliament ahead of national roll out. The Government remains committed to the national roll out of ICTGs.
