The NWG in collaboration with Philippa Southwell, Modern Slavery lead Advocate, Birds Solicitors,
are pleased to announce the launch of a ‘Modern Slavery and Trafficking Considerations’ resource. The resource is aimed at Local Authority, Police and CPS/legal colleagues and is designed to provide a checklist of considerations in relation to suspected victims of Trafficking and Modern Slavery. The resource includes information about Modern Slavery legislation including Section 45 defence and the benefits of the National Referral Mechanism (NRM). The intention of the document is to provide professionals with information to support them to protect victims of Modern Slavery and Trafficking.
This is a members only document and can be found by visiting the resources section of our website and searching ‘Modern Slavery and Trafficking Considerations’
