About the Bill

Giving victims the same rights to support in E&W as in Scotland and NI

In Scotland and Northern Ireland there is already legislation that guarantees victims of human trafficking will be provided with support during the initial reflection and recovery period.

In Scotland this is also being extended to 90 days, double the basic provision in England and Wales. Victims in England and Wales should have at a minimum the same guarantee of support that victims in Scotland and Northern Ireland have.
