Priority 3: To identify, promote and facilitate best practice in partnership working, and to encourage improved data sharing and high quality research into key issues
How is this going to be achieved?
3.1 Partnership models
3.11 Working to ensure partnerships are in place across the country that enable effective communication streams between relevant bodies including, but not limited to, law enforcement, local authorities, health care bodies and NGOs.
3.12 Promoting identified best practice, providing comprehensive guidance and encouraging further development of outcome-focused models across the UK.
3.2 Vulnerable communities
3.21 Development of partnerships with civil society organisations, faith groups and embassies in order to engage effectively with diaspora communities.
3.22 Development of new partnerships with homeless charities and diaspora community organisations and other groups that work with individuals with a high risk vulnerability to modern slavery exploitation.
3.23 Collaboration with organisations supporting workers in especially vulnerable sectors, including hospitality, domestic work, agriculture and the fishing industry.
3.24 Close cooperation with health sector partners to ensure that staff are able to spot the signs of potential victims of modern slavery and refer them to appropriate support.
3.3 Data capture and data sharing
3.31 Encouraging UK law enforcement agencies, particularly the National Crime Agency, to develop improved systems for sharing data with partner source countries. This should include data on numbers and profiles of potential victims identified in the UK and intelligence on the methods and routes employed by traffickers to enable an improved shared understanding of the issue and a more coordinated response.
3.4 Awareness raising
3.41 Working with partners to increase awareness in schools, with a focus on regions affected by high levels of forced labour exploitation.
3.42 Delivering presentations and speeches at events across the UK and internationally.
3.43 Utilising media opportunities and campaigns to raise awareness of modern slavery and key issues amongst the general public and specific sectors.
3.5 External research
3.51 Developing partnerships with academic and research institutions and promoting external high quality quantitative and qualitative research into modern slavery issues in order to fill key evidence gaps and develop a stronger evidence base.
How will we know that the response is improving?
