The Government is committed to tackling modern slavery and supporting all victims through the National Referral Mechanism (NRM). We are reforming the NRM to ensure victims of modern slavery get the support they need and are introducing measures to ensure quicker, more effective decision-making.

National Referral Mechanism decision makers receive extensive classroom based training and considerable guidance, mentoring and ongoing support from experienced colleagues. Their performance and quality of work is routinely monitored. All NRM decision-makers are paid in line with the rate for Home Office Executive Officers, which is the grade for the decision-making role.
