This report presents a summary of the number of potential victims of modern slavery and human trafficking referred in to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) during the period 1st October to 31st December 2017. The figures used are from the NRM data with a cut-off date of 10/01/2018. Some of the cases remain open with the Competent Authorities and decisions on their trafficking status are yet to be made. The NRM is a ‘living’ process and data should be considered provisional until all cases are concluded. Some values may differ from previous or future reports as supplementary information is revealed throughout the duration of a case and their records are adjusted accordingly.
