The Modern Slavery helpline was set up on 31 July 2014 as part of a wider
national communications campaign. Between 31 July 2014 and 29 January 2015,
the NSPCC helpline received a total of 654 contacts. These contacts comprise
383 referrals, 82 advice cases, and 189 enquiries. The helpline ensures that
potential victims are referred to the appropriate agencies, including law
enforcement, for immediate support and assistance. As a result, the NSPCC does
not record the number of confirmed victims of modern slavery, including human
trafficking.
