We have an award-winning partnership with the UK’s National Crime Agency, helping it to bring child abusers to justice. Building on this, we have launched new work with Kent Police and Surrey Police. In those forces our victim navigators help those who have been rescued from slavery through the criminal justice system, with the aim of increasing care and improving prosecution rates.
In the Netherlands we are working with survivors of slavery – helping to rebuild their lives and bring justice to those responsible.
Over the next 12 to 24 months, we have exciting further plans for Europe which we will release details about here.
I commend your ongoing work to increase levels of awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking across the UK, and to provide essential support to victims and survivors, enabling them to access the services they need to rebuild their lives’
