To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many calls have been logged in total since the government-funded trafficking helpline run by the NSPCC was established; and how many confirmed victims of human trafficking have been identified as a result of such calls.

The Modern Slavery helpline was set up on 31 July 2014 as part of a wider

national communications campaign. Between 31 July 2014 and 29 January 2015,

the NSPCC helpline received a total of 654 contacts. These contacts comprise

383 referrals, 82 advice cases, and 189 enquiries. The helpline ensures that

potential victims are referred to the appropriate agencies, including law

enforcement, for immediate support and assistance. As a result, the NSPCC does

not record the number of confirmed victims of modern slavery, including human

trafficking.
