Just for Kids Law campaign: Help Protect Children Recruited by the State as Spies

Just for Kids have launched a campaign to challenge the government’s policy of allowing children to be used as spies by police and other investigative agencies.

They are launching a judicial review against the Home Office’s safeguarding procedure for the recruitment of these children, who don’t even have the same safeguards as children involved in criminal offending.

Just for Kinds seek a  guidance to make clear that the child’s welfare is considered when they are recruited; that proper risk assessments are carried out, and that children are only used in the most exceptional of circumstances with appropriate safeguards.
