star this property answer text <p>The Prevent Programme is fundamentally about safeguarding and supporting vulnerable individuals to stop them from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. In June, the Prime Minister outlined the Government’s commitment to review the UK’s counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST), drawing on lessons learned from the recent attacks earlier this year. As the threat we face from terrorism becomes more complex, our strategy needs to evolve with it. The Prevent Strategy is being assessed as part of this review.</p> more like this

The CTPF has two objectives. First, victim support and recovery, including specialist care to trafficked children. Second, reducing vulnerability to exploitation, by preventing trafficked children from going missing and potentially being re-trafficked. The projects cover a range of proposals including tailored support for trafficking victims from various cultures, developing skills and expertise in local areas, and a specialist accommodation pilot.</p>

It is absolutely right that local authorities continue to make decisions about the placement and welfare of children they have responsibility for, which includes assessing risks such as trafficking, and considering the need to refer them to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM).</p><p>The recently announced package of reforms to the NRM includes a number of measures that will improve the process for both adults and children. A single expert unit will be created in the Home Office to handle all cases referred from front line staff and to make decisions about whether somebody is a victim of modern slavery. This will replace the current case management units in the National Crime Agency and UK Visas and Immigration and will be separate from the immigration system.</p><p>In addition government will be introducing an independent panel of experts to review all negative conclusive grounds decisions, adding significantly to the scrutiny such cases currently receive.</p>

This estimate used a methodology known as Multiple Systems Estimation.</p><p>The data this estimate was based on is no longer collected in a manner that enables Multiple Systems Estimation to be repeated. However, our understanding of the scale of modern slavery is evolving as more victims are identified and following increased operational activity.
