Modern slavery victims to receive longer period of support

Measures designed to radically improve the identification and support for victims of human trafficking and modern slavery were announced on October 26 by Minister for Crime, Safeguarding and Vulnerability, Sarah Newton.

During a House of Commons debate on modern slavery, the minister unveiled reforms to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) which will see the minimum period of ‘move-on’ support for victims significantly increased, the establishment of ‘places of safety’ which will provide immediate support to potential victims, as well as up to 6 months of ‘drop-in’ services, developed in partnership with The Salvation Army, for those transitioning out of the NRM.

The government will also roll out nationally the provision of Independent Child Trafficking Advocates, who will provide specialist support and act in the best interests of trafficked children. The service is currently running in Wales, Hampshire and Greater Manchester.
