The Home Office has this week published statutory guidance under section 49(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The guidance covers indicators of trafficking, support, and the decision making process. The statutory guidance will replace a number of existing documents, namely:
- Guidance: Duty to Notify the Home Office of potential victim of modern slavery
- Victims of modern slavery: frontline staff guidance
- Victims of modern slavery: competent authority guidance
- Multi-Agency Assurance Panels Guidance
