I am asking for annual data from 2013 onwards about the number of minors referred to your authority under the National Referral Mechanism AND how many of these children have been reported missing after entering your care. If possible, please could you include their ages and nationality (although if this would be too time-consuming under the Act and would lead to my request being denied, please omit this data).
National Referral Mechanism referrals are not sent to Local Authorities but sent by local authorities to the National Crime Agency’s Modern Slavery Human Trafficking Unit (MSHTU) as the Competent Authority.
The response to the first question is therefore none.
