star this property answer text <p>Under Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, large businesses with a turnover of £36m or more are required to publish annual modern slavery statements detailing the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery in their UK operations and global supply chains. The requirement applies to all sectors, including agriculture. The Government is committed to doing more and will shortly be launching a consultation to strengthen the transparency in supply chains legislation, making it harder for companies to avoid scrutiny.</p><p>The Home Office regularly engages with businesses across a range of sectors to accelerate progress in tackling modern slavery in global supply chains.</p><p>The Gangmasters Labour and Abuse Authority (GLAA) licenses UK businesses which provide workers to the farming, food processing and shellfish gathering sectors to make sure they meet the employment standards required by law; and carries out inspections and enforcement activity. The GLAA also partner with businesses such as Sainsbury’s to deliver training sessions to their suppliers, equipping them to better identify and manage risks in their supply chains.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In July 2018 the Government published statutory guidance on inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ guidance is intended for and should be read and followed by frontline practitioners and strategic leaders in local authorities, together with other organisations and agencies that commission and provide services for children and families. The guidance specifically highlights the risk to children from exploitation by criminal gangs and organised crime groups such as county lines. It also makes clear that children who may be alleged perpetrators should also be assessed to understand the impact of contextual issues on their safety and welfare.</p><p>The Government is committed to increasing awareness of county lines exploitation amongst those best placed to spot it and published guidance for frontline professionals in July 2017, which was reviewed and updated in September 2018, on how to identify potential victims of county lines and appropriate referral routes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Tackling slavery remains a priority for this Government. We are committed to ending slavery in all its forms and supporting victims into accommodation where necessary so that they can rebuild their lives.</p><p>The Government takes the issue of modern slavery and homelessness very seriously and recognises there is a risk of those sleeping rough being vulnerable to trafficking. Because of this, in October 2018, the Home Office and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) hosted a roundtable on modern slavery and homelessness, as part of MHCLG’s commitment in their rough sleeping strategy to raise the profile of this complex issue at the national level.</p><p>We’re also investing £1.2bn to tackle homelessness, including our bold Rough Sleeping Strategy, backed by £100m of funding, as well as empowering councils to build more council homes to ensure everyone has a safe and secure home.</p><p>Following advice from the Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel (which includes experts from homelessness charities and local government), the Government committed in its strategy to introduce new packages of training for frontline staff working with those who sleep rough, including victims of modern slavery. The training will provide participants with an improved awareness of modern slavery, how to identify potential victims, the issues and characteristics victims of modern slavery may present with and an understanding of how best to support a victim to prevent or relieve their homelessness.</p>
