Detail

This report, ‘Human trafficking: the government’s strategy’, gives a renewed focus on prevention overseas, a stronger border at home, tougher action on the perpetrators and better identification and care for the victims.

This strategy takes a comprehensive approach to tackling trafficking. It:

  • confirms our commitment to improving victim care arrangements
  • focuses on disrupting trafficking networks before they reach the UK
  • establishes a basis for smarter multi-agency action at the border
  • aims to improve coordination of our law enforcement efforts in the UK
  • seeks to strengthen intelligence-gathering and -sharing through the new National Crime Agency
  • places emphasis on raising awareness of child trafficking and ensuring child victims are safeguarded and protected from re-trafficking
