Child protection committees develop protocols for prostitution

Nearly all area child protection committees in England have
created protocols to safeguard children involved in prostitution,
government research has revealed.

A review commissioned by the department of health found that
89.7 per cent of all of England’s ACPCs have either finalised
or drawn up draft child prostitution protocols. Also, 91 per cent
of the 111 ACPCs which acknowledged that children were involved in
prostitution in their area, have protocols, either finalised or a
draft version.
