The Home Office recently appointed a new Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner to help spearhead the UK’s response to the devastating crime. The new commissioner will be driving new initiatives to prevent offences, identify and protect victims of modern slavery, and to ensure the right support is provided for victims and survivors.

To accompany this, the government recently published key reforms to the National Referral Mechanism with the aim of lifting victims out of situations of exploitation.

Join us in June to hear the latest guidance and good practice from leading experts and practitioners in the field on how to identify, refer and support victims of trafficking and modern slavery. This is an important event for local authorities, the police, health officials and other key stakeholders.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • Update on the latest strategies and guidance for identifying victims of human trafficking and modern slavery
  • Understand recent reforms to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) and their impact
  • Creating a more cohesive and efficient support system through improved data-sharing
  • Ensuring safety beyond a referral: preventing re-entry into trafficking
  • Utilising legal powers to enforce the Modern Slavery Act

About the event:

The morning session will focus on reviewing the latest guidance and updates from the national landscape with a particular focus on recent changes to the National Referral Mechanism.
