Concerns over the changes for the National Referral Mechanism’s Final Review
The Refugee Children’s Consortium, a group of over 40 asylum seeker and refugee organisations have expressed concerns over the new proposed changes to the National Referral Mechanism’s (NRM) final review. These concerns include:
- exclusion of the voluntary sector in the referrals system for safeguarding victims of trafficking to include children and young people,
- no right of appeal in the NRM,
- lack of integration of new 9 multi-disciplinary hubs into the child protection system, and the
- lack of statutory footing.
The group have now written to Minister for Modern Slavery and Organised Crime, Karen Bradley, MP calling on the Modern Slavery Bill to ensure victims are effectively identified and receive the specialist support that they are entitled to.
