The Home Secretary has noted that Justice and Care UK and the Centre for Social Justice’s report contains important findings on modern slavery. The Home Office will be looking at the report closely.

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 was ground-breaking, but the Government is committed to strengthening its approach. In July 2018, the Government commissioned an Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The Government accepted the majority of the Review’s recommendations (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-response-to-the-independent-review-of-the-modern-slavery-act).

The Home Office has embarked on an ambitious NRM Transformation Programme as we continue our world leading efforts to ensure genuine victims have their cases settled promptly, receive support tailored to their needs, and are provided with the support they need to move on with their lives.
