This operational guidance for front-line staff is intended to provide information on modern slavery and human trafficking and to set out the appropriate arrangements for identifying and supporting adult victims or potential victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.
It is issued by the Department of Justice, the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the Health and Social Care Board. It has been developed in discussion with the Department of Health. It replaces the earlier version of the Working Arrangements for the Welfare and Protection of Adult Victims of Human Trafficking which previously issued in October 2012.
The guidance may be amended from time to time to reflect changes to legislation or policy and procedures in relation to victims of modern slavery and human trafficking.
