In 2019/20, total police funding will increase by over £1 billion including council tax and the £100 million Serious Violence Fund. We continue to work closely with law enforcement in order to better understand the evolving issue of county lines drug dealing and develop effective responses.</p><p>Through the Serious Violence Strategy published in April 2018, we provided £3.6m to establish the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre, a joint initiative between the National Crime Agency and policing, to enhance the intelligence picture and support cross border efforts to tackle county lines. Since its launch in September 2018, it has carried out three separate weeks of operational intensification leading to over 1600 arrests, over 2100 individuals safeguarded and significant seizures of weapons and drugs.</p><p>The Government made £8.5m of additional funding available from the police transformation fund to support the establishment of the Modern Slavery Police Transformation Unit (MSPTU) in October 2016. The programme supports a bespoke modern slavery intelligence hub, regional analysts and operational coordinators, improved training and dedicated thematic experts to support individual police forces. The Government is continuing to support the programme through an additional £3.1m of funding for the current financial year. During 2019/20 the Programme will aim to support the police services to increase the focus on prevention activity and improving investigations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Criminal exploitation in the form of county lines has a devastating impact on those affected and we must work together to identify and safeguard the vic-tims and potential victims of this form of exploitation as early as possible.</p><p>We welcome the report published by the Children’s Society and will consider its findings carefully as we continue to develop and strengthen our response to county lines.</p><p>In 2018, the Department for Education revised the Working Together to Safeguard Children and Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance to reflect the risks to include specific mention of the risks to children from county lines, criminal exploitation and other harms from outside the home.</p><p>New arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children, must be implemented by safeguarding partners by the end of September 2019. It will be for local determination what the arrangements cover, but they must set out how all children, including those at risk of child criminal exploitation, will be kept safe. In order to bring transparency about the activities undertaken, the safeguarding partners must publish a report at least once in every 12-month period, setting out what they have done as a result of the arrangements and how effective these arrangements have been in practice.</p><p>The Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 considered the def-inition of exploitation under the Act and found it is sufficiently flexible to meet a range of new and emerging forms of modern slavery.</p><p>In addition, there is an existing, published definition of child criminal exploi-tation in the Serious Violence Strategy. The strategy is available <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/698009/serious-violence-strategy.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/698009/serious-violence-strategy.pdf</a></p><p>Section 48 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 which makes provisions for Inde-pendent Child Trafficking Advocates was also considered by the Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. In-line with one of the Review’s recommendations, Independent Child Trafficking Advocates have recently been renamed Independent Child Trafficking Guardians (ICTGs).</p><p>ICTGs are an additional source of advice and support for all trafficked children and somebody who can advocate on their behalf. The current service model provides one-to-one support for children who lack a figure of parental responsibility for them in the UK and an expert ICTG regional practice co-ordinator whose role will be to focus on children who do have a figure of parental responsibility for them in the UK. The ICTG regional practice co-ordinator works with statutory bodies including the police, social workers and the Criminal Justice System to foster effective multi-agency working to safeguard these vulnerable children.</p><p>The Government remains committed to rolling out ICTGs nationally with the service currently being available in one third of local authorities in England and Wales.The Government Response to the Independent Review was published on 9 July and is available: <br> <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-response-to-the-independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-response-to-the-independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>

What is ‘reasonable’ will be different for each employer because of factors such as the practicality and the cost of making the adjustment. A court or tribunal may ultimately make a final decision on whether a particular person meets the definition of disability in the Act and whether an adjustment request is reasonable.</p><p> </p><p>Practical advice on reasonable adjustments is available from a number of sources, including Acas and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The EHRC’s examples of reasonable adjustments for employers include disability leave.</p><p> </p><p>If a disabled person feels that they have not been treated fairly by an employer, the Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS) offers information and advice about discrimination, including disability discrimination. EASS can be contacted by telephone, via an online contact form or by post.</p>
