The Home Office has published a policy paper in response to the recommendations made in the independent review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 carried out by Frank Field MP, Maria Miller MP and Baroness Butler-Sloss. The independent review included consideration of the role of Independent Child Trafficking Advocates (ICTAs) in England and Wales in ensuring support for child victims of modern slavery. The response includes: a change of name of ICTAs to Independent Child Trafficking Guardians; and agreement on the national rollout of Independent Child Trafficking Guardians across England and Wales. The government has also announced the launch of the Policy and Evidence Centre for Modern Slavery and Human Rights.
