A committed group of individuals from a range of agencies developed referral pathways to provide an understanding of the current system in place to help victims and what everyone’s responsibilities’ are. Two pathways were produced, one for children and one for adults. Different scenarios were considered alongside a list of agencies that may come across victims of trafficking or slavery. The one page pathway includes a checklist of indicators that may suggest a person is a victim of trafficking or slavery.
In the first instance these pathways should be used by professionals and imbedded into current safeguarding protocols.
If you have urgent information that requires an immediate response call 999. To record non-urgent information contact the Modern Slavery Helpline here.
