star this property answer text <p>The Home Office sponsors the National Referral Mechanism to provide support to victims of modern slavery offences, whilst support for workers who have experienced exploitative treatment from employers and employment agencies is available from other enforcement authorities across Government, including the HMRC national minimum wage team, the BEIS Employment Agency Standards' Inspectorate and the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority. All potential adult victims of Modern Slavery, including those who suffer labour exploitation, are able to access a tailored and specialised package of care and support through the £40m government-funded Salvation Army victim care contract.</p><p>The Modern Slavery Act 2015 consolidated and strengthened modern slavery offences and introduced a world-leading provision which requires all commercial organisations operating in the UK with a turnover above £36m to set out what steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery in their business and supply chains. This transparency will drive improvements in tackling modern slavery throughout the business community.</p><p>The Immigration Act 2016 established the Director of Labour Market Enforcement to provide closer integration between the authorities responsible for enforcing labour market protections and a stronger intelligence capability, reformed the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority with new powers to investigate labour market offences wherever they occur in the economy, and stronger sanctions for non-compliant businesses. The Immigration Act 2016 also includes new powers to tackle employers of migrants working illegally on the UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government published a new Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy on 8 March and committed funding of £80 million between 2016 and 2020 to protect women and girls from violence. This increased funding will help to deliver our goal to work with local commissioners to deliver a secure future for rape support centres, refuges and FGM and Forced Marriage Units, whilst driving a major change across all services which promotes early intervention and prevention.</p><p>The Strategy identifies that some sectors of society can experience multiple forms of discrimination and disadvantage or additional barriers to accessing support. These include women and girls from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&amp;T) victims. The increased funding of £80 million, and our support for local areas to improve local commissioning, will help to ensure that the needs for LGBT and BME victims are met through specialist support.</p><p>The new Strategy also recognises that a sustainable approach to preventing abuse is dependent on changing the attitudes and behaviours of perpetrators. As part our renewed focus on early intervention and breaking the cycle of violence, the Government will work with local areas on changing the attitudes and behaviours of perpetrators, to make sure rehabilitation, mental health interventions and other appropriate perpetrator programmes are in place.</p><p>In recent years there has been a step change in the number of domestic abuse crimes recorded by the police. The new Strategy sets out that we will continue to drive a culture change in the police response to recognise domestic abuse as the serious crime that it is, and encourage more victims, including BME victims of domestic abuse, to report to the police. We will also ensure that women can seek help in a range of settings as they go about their daily lives and have easy access to community based support at the earliest opportunity.</p>
