The prime contractor for the Victim Care Contract, The Salvation Army, is responsible for ensuring that all subcontracted provision meets the needs of victims. The Salvation Army conducts regular safeguarding reviews and it has a duty to escalate to the Home Office any safeguarding concerns that it finds. Furthermore, as part of reforms to the NRM, work is also underway to develop an independent inspection framework for care provision based on the Human Trafficking Foundation’s Survivor Care Standards.</p><p>Child victims of modern slavery are supported by local authorities under existing statutory child protection arrangements.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Currently, the maximum amount of an advance is determined by the claimants expected UC payment and the need to repay it over 12 months at a maximum deduction rate of 40% of the standard allowance.</p><p>We have announced that we will reduce this maximum rate to 30% to ensure that claimants with the highest rate of deductions will keep more of their monthly payment. UC claimants who currently have deductions of over 30% will benefit from this change, because they will have up to 10% more of their Universal Credit standard allowance available each month.</p><p>We recognise that this could impact the maximum advance available to claimants, to ensure that this does not happen and that claimants still receive the level of support they need, we have increased the amount of time claimants have to repay the Advance from 12 to 16 months.</p> more like this

We have also set out plans for a brand new railcard extending half-price child rail fares to 16 and 17-year-olds, which will be launched shortly.</p><p>All decisions in relation to regulated rail fares are made in line with the Department’s appraisal framework webTAG, which considers the environmental impacts of changes in rail travel patterns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Whilst decisions on staffing are for individual operators, the Government has been clear that it wants to see more staff on our railway not fewer. The Government is not aware of any plans by franchised operators to reduce the number of guards rostered on train services, and it welcomes the commitments made by Northern and South Western that a guard will continue to be rostered on every train after the introduction of Driver Controlled Operation (DCO).</p><p> </p><p>The ORR, the independent rail regulator, and the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) have found that DCO is safe. In addition, an RSSB report concluded that the introduction of DCO according to the standard safety management requirements that all rail companies routinely meet does not increase any other passenger safety risks and, furthermore, that cancelling a DCO train in the absence of its guard is more risky than running it with only its driver.</p><p> </p> more like this
