Modern slavery and COVID

The Home Office has confirmed that the National Referral Mechanism is, and will continue to take referrals of potential modern slavery victims throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and individuals who are referred will continue to be able to access the support they require through the Victim Care Contract, including accommodation.

For the next three months the Home Office will not be requiring people to leave Home Office accommodation. Further information on supporting survivors of Modern Slavery during this time can be found here.
