UK’s Homes for Ukraine scheme risks operating as ‘Tinder for sex traffickers’, say charities
Michael Gove warned that his housing project has insufficient safeguards for those seeking sanctuary
Michael Gove’s Homes for Ukraine scheme risks operating as “Tinder for sex traffickers” according to experts. The warning comes as evidence emerges that UK-based criminals are targeting women and children fleeing the war.
A letter from 16 refugee and anti-trafficking organisations to communities secretary Gove warns that the scheme in its present form is potentially dangerous for refugees who have fled Ukraine.
