An evaluate report of the Trafficking and Grooming (T&G) project in Gloucestershire, which was set up to meet the needs of trafficked women and support young women being groomed into prostitution. The evaluation examined the projects effectiveness and any learning in terms of frontline practice with victims of grooming and trafficking. Data were collected and analysed using: 12 telephone interviews with selected practitioners who worked with the T&G project and/or are working with young people, analysis of 64 individual victim casework files; and 174 evaluation sheets completed by attendees completing child sexual exploitation (CSE) training delivered by the T&G project. The evaluation found the project evolved to focus particularly on young girls at risk of, or experiencing, sexual exploitation broadly (90% of recorded cases) and has worked with only a handful of trafficking victims. However, the project reduced child sexual exploitation risks for two thirds of individuals supported. The majority of those interviewed felt the service was needed and that the current staff of the T&G project, if resourced adequately, were well placed locally to deliver it.
