The Inter-Departmental Ministerial Group on Human Trafficking, of which I am a member, regularly discusses this subject.

As part of the UK’s commitment to implementing the Council of Europe Convention against Trafficking in Human Beings, the Government have awarded £3.7 million over the next two financial years to the POPPY Project. This grant will be used for national support services for victims of human trafficking for sexual exploitation and domestic servitude. The Government have also implemented a National Referral Mechanism to help facilitate victims of trafficking into the appropriate support and protection.
