The scale of human trafficking and modern slavery is far larger than “anyone had previously thought”, the National Crime Agency has said today. Tens of thousands of adults and children, according to NCA Director of Vulnerabilities, Will Kerr, are likely to have been trafficked into modern slavery and human trafficking in the UK.
We are working with Care2 to call on the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd MP, to overhaul the current system of identification/support for victims of trafficking – the National Referral Mechanism (NRM).
The second report for the ReACT project provides guidance for professionals on how to improve the identification and protection of children who may have been trafficked.
