These briefings provide analysis of the publicly available UK National Referral Mechanism (NRM) data on potential victims of modern slavery. The NRM is the UK’s official system through which victims of modern slavery are identified and supported.

The briefings will follow each quarterly release of NRM data from the Home Office. The briefings will focus on the data from the most recent quarter but will also use historical NRM data for context. They will also provide an analysis of key highlights, ongoing trends, and data gaps identified by IOM UK. The briefings offer additional analysis to the Home Office’s own statistical bulletin for each NRM data release.
