Modern slavery: statutory guidance

The Home Office has published statutory guidance for England and Wales describing the signs that someone may be a victim of modern slavery, the support available to victims, and the process for determining whether someone is a victim. The guidance includes a chapter summarising information for staff who may support child victims. Topics covered include: multi-agency working and protocols to support child victims; the development of local protocols for child victims and response; safeguarding children; unaccompanied children; child criminal exploitation and county lines.  The guidance includes an annex outlining indicators of child victims and specific types of modern slavery.
