Access to work for survivors of slavery to enable independence and sustainable freedom

March, 2021

This joint briefing, published by FLEX and partner organisations on the 6-year anniversary of the UK Modern Slavery Act, calls on the UK Home Office to urgently review access to work for survivors of trafficking, who are currently prevented from working due to immigration restrictions, to allow them to work whilst they are in the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), in order to enable independence and sustainable freedom.
