star this property answer text <p>The National Referral Mechanism is our system for identifying and providing access to support for suspected victims.</p><p>The support for adult victims is provided through a Government-funded support service, the Victim Care Contract (VCC), which gives all adult victims in England and Wales a tailored and specialised package of care and support which includes, but is not limited to, accommodation, financial support, counselling, access to mental, physical and dental health services, and signposting to legal support.</p><p>Currently all potential victims of modern slavery who receive a positive Reasonable Grounds (RG) decision in the NRM are able to access a minimum of 45-days of support delivered through the VCC during their recovery and reflection period. This support is provided until the potential victim receives a Conclusive Grounds (CG) decision. This will be at least 45 days after they enter support but is often longer.</p><p>After the recovery and reflection period, victims who receive a positive CG decision are currently able to access continuing move-on support. Previously this support was provided for 45 days, but the Home Office is in the process of reviewing this policy.</p><p>Those who receive a negative decision are able to access a further 9 days of move-on support.</p><p>Child victims of modern slavery are supported by local authorities under existing statutory child protection arrangements. In addition, Section 48 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, makes provisions for Independent Child Trafficking Advocates (ICTAs). ICTAs are an independent source of advice for trafficked children and somebody who can speak up on their behalf. We have successfully rolled out ICTAs to one third of all local authorities in England and Wales and the Government remains committed to rolling ICTAs out nationally.</p><p>The Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act led by Frank Field, Bar-oness Butler-Sloss and Maria Miller has recently considered Section 48 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, which makes provision for ICTAs. The Review’s final report can be found <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act-final-report%20" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act-final-report </a></p><p>The Government is currently carefully considering the recommendations for ICTAs for national roll out.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Adults who enter the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) can receive specialist and tailored support through the Victim Care Contract. This can include accommodation, financial support and assistance in accessing mental and physical health care</p><p>We ensure victims are safeguarded through robust contract management. 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.</p><p>In October 2017, the Government announced an ambitious package of reforms to the NRM. As part of that package, we are introducing an inspection regime for accommodation provided through the Victim Care Contract. This will ensure that victims of modern slavery are effectively safeguarded while in the NRM. We are working with the Care and Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England, to develop this regime which will be embedded in the new Victim Care Contract</p><p>The Government is unable to provide an accurate figure for the number of confirmed victims who have been re-trafficked after leaving the National Referral Mechanism.</p><p>We are working with the National Crime Agency to improve our ability to identify potential re-trafficking cases. Our reforms to introduce a new digital referral process will also improve our ability to identify re-trafficking, as it will increase our knowledge of victims of modern slavery and enable us to capture and analyse data to better aid prevention and law enforcement activity. The digital referral form has already been launched for closed-beta testing with a group of First Responders and it will go live at the end of the summer.</p>
