Age Assessment Practice Guidance for Scotland

Year: 2018
Topic: Child trafficking
Author: Scottish Government

The prompt for a revision of the original guidance was to reflect the provision of giving young people the benefit of the doubt in circumstances of assessing age,
which was made an explicit duty for trafficking victims within the Trafficking and Exploitation (Scotland) Act 2015. However, young people are increasingly being
given the benefit of the doubt for the purposes of support during the age assessment process in cases where the young person isn’t necessarily thought to be a victim of trafficking. Whilst this has not been explicitly legislated for, this position is supported by case law.
