The Home Office published new statutory guidance for the identification and support of modern slavery and human trafficking victims.

This guidance supersedes the following earlier guidance documents:

  • Guidance: Duty to Notify the Home Office of potential victims of modern slavery
  • Victims of modern slavery: frontline staff guidance
  • Victims of modern slavery: competent authority guidance
  • Multi-Agency Assurance Panels Guidance
  • Duty to Notify Guidance

Statutory guidance sets out the information that competent authority staff in England and Wales must be aware of and the processes that they must follow. It includes fundamental information regarding modern slavery indicators, types of modern slaver and the organisations involved in combating modern slavery and human trafficking.

The guidance is intended for competent authority staff in England and Wales.

The full guidance can be found on the government website here.
