Modern Day Slavery and Human Trafficking Exploitation

Human Trafficking Foundation      Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group Survey:
Multi-Agency Quality Assurance Panels

As part of the NRM reforms announced in 2017, the Government committed to the establishment of Multi-Agency Quality Assurance panels to  “achieve quicker and more certain decision-making, that stakeholders and victims have confidence in.” To do this, the government stated it will:
  • Create a single, expert case-working unit in the Home Office to handle all NRM cases and provide high quality, timely decisions for all victims regardless of their nationality – this will replace the current competent authorities in the National Crime Agency, and UK Visas and Immigration and will be separate from the immigration system
  • Set up an independent panel of experts to review all negative conclusive grounds decisions, adding significantly to the scrutiny such cases already receive

The Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group are conducting a survey for all appointed panellists to understand more about the reform and its implementation. The surveys are anonymous, and can be accessed here: ATMG Survey 

We kindly ask all panellists to take the time to complete the survey, there are 20 short questions and it should take no more than 15 mins to complete. Please do circulate the survey to other panellists who may not be on the HTF mailing list.
Any questions or if you require further information, please contact Anna Sereni:

The survey will close to responses by Friday 21 June 2019.


The international freight forwarder, John Shirley Ltd, has joined forces with anti-slavery charity Unseen, Canterbury Soroptimists and the UN to launch a new campaign May 2019 to raise awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking in the UK and across Europe. Stickers (pictured above) will be put on 200 lorries, asking people who may have witnessed any incident that looks like human trafficking or slavery to report it.
