  • Department for Education
  • Department of Health and Social Care
  • Ministry of Justice
  • National Policing Lead on child protection and abuse investigations
  • Crown Prosecution Service

The Steering Group usually meets on a quarterly basis and is chaired by the Director of Tackling Slavery and Exploitation at the Home Office.
