Extended IASC calls for Survivor Insights: Mental Health Provision and Cultural Sensitivity

 

Overview

The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner has extended the call for survivor insights to inform a consultation focused on mental health support for victims and survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking, specifically:

'Are victims and survivors of modern slavery within the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) provided with mental health support that is appropriate to their needs?'

 

The consultation, commissioned by the IASC, aims to scope:

1. Whether victims and survivors of modern slavery within the NRM are able to access mental health support that is appropriate to their needs.

2. Whether the mental health support provided is culturally sensitive and to what extent this is important to survivors

 

Submit Evidence

We are seeking views from survivors who are:

  • Based in the UK
  • Over the age of 18
  • In the NRM or who have left the NRM

 

As this is a rapid piece of work, this survey is available in English.

Deadline

This call for evidence will run until Friday 26 November 2021.
