To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he plans to provide additional funding to ensure the 2020 modern slavery victim care contract complies with the Human Trafficking Foundation's slavery and trafficking survivor care standards.
Answer (Victoria Atkins)
The Government is committed to introducing minimum standards of care in the new victim care contract.
These standards will be monitored using an inspection regime, based on the Human Trafficking Foundation’s Slavery and Trafficking Survivor Care Standards. The tender of the new contract will include the standards and any costs associated will be incorporated as part of the contact procurement process.
